I love Brushetta, and it is so easy to make on your own!


1/4 teaspoon Basil
1/4 teaspoon Parsley
2 Tablespoons vegetable or olive oil
1 medium sized tomato
1 loaf of french bread
Green onions (optional)
Shredded Cheese (any flavor)

First of all, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In the mean time, cut your french bread into pieces about 1 1/2 inches thick. Then butter both sides of the bread. I use "Smart Balance," which is healthy butter. :) Buttering both sides helps get a softer inside and crunchier outside, which is how I like it!

Cut up your tomato into cubes. You will want to cut out the seeds. Put the tomatoes in a bowl. Then add some parsley, basil, and vegetable oil. Honestly, I don't know how much. A few shakes of basil and parsley and about 2 tablespoons oil. Also, add about a handful of shredded cheese and chopped green onions (for color). Mix all these ingredients together. 

Once the oven is done preheating, put just the bread in the oven for about 3-4 minutes, just to get the butter melted and the bread starting to get a bit crunchy. Then, remove the bread and add a little of the mixture to the top of each loaf of bread. Put in the oven until the cheese has melted and the bread is crunchier around the edges. (The bread will be in the oven less than ten minutes all together.)

Remove from the oven and enjoy! :)
