Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday today. I just can’t seem to get enough of the all the tomatoes this summer. I am eating them in everything! I love the small sweet ones (yellow and red) both raw in salads and also cooked in stir fry meals and sauces. Sometimes I think I crave bowls of spaghetti with marinara sauce just so I can eat the sauce. Anyone else? Today, I have a simple yet incredibly delicious recipe that my family has been enjoying serving the past few weeks. This ridiculously easy Skillet Charred Tomato Bruschetta will have your whole family double dipping.
Skillet Charred Tomato Bruschetta
Honestly, you won’t believe how simple this Tomato Bruschetta is. You will need a nice sturdy cast iron skillet to start and some high quality extra virgin olive oil. I like to use a combination of yellow and red cherry tomatoes but any or either are fine. Add in a little fresh garlic, salt, pepper and basil and that’s it.
I know I could move to Italy and be one happy girl. I would live off of pasta and pizza and all things tomato all the time. But alas, that is probably not happening. Italian food is one thing all of our family members will eat so it’s our go to when want to cook a nice big family dinner. We originally prepared the Skillet Charred Tomato Bruschetta as a side to eat atop homemade bread. The next morning I made an omelet and topped it with the left over tomatoes and oh my goodness it was delicious.
Sometimes you just have to splurge on really good bread and this is how you should do it. Trust me. Your family will thank you. Hope you enjoy this super simple summer Skillet Charred Tomato Bruschetta. Pairs perfectly with just about any meal.
