Make this delicious bruschetta for yourself after you get home from the gym, or work. It’s goes wonderfully with a glass of wine! Lucky for me, there’s a grocery store next to my gym, it only took a few minutes to run in and grab what I needed before heading home.
First thing you want to do is to chop up about one tablespoon of a shallot, 2 bay leaves (rolled and chopped), 4 cherry tomatoes chopped fairly fine, 2 strips of chopped bacon and enough mozzarella cheese to put you in heaven.
Then take 2 pieces of italian bread smothered in a garlic butter, place in a toaster oven or under your broiler. Keep it in there until it’s toasted to a light golden perfection. While the bread is doing its toasty thing, take all the other ingredients except for the cheese and toss together in a bowl.
When the bread is almost done, remove it from the oven, cover it with all the deliciousness of the tomatoes, bacon, shallots and basil. Then dot the mixture with the cheese. Go heavy if you want, it’s all good!!!! And who doesn’t like cheese? Pop it back in the toaster oven until the cheese is melted. Before diving into this scrumptiousness (this may not be a correct word but it works here), drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and enjoy! Prop your feet up, and love life.
