Learn how to make classic bruschetta with our quick and easy recipe. It really does take only 5 minutes to make this delicious bruschetta. Each piece of crispy bread is loaded with fresh plum tomatoes, infused with garlic and garnished with basil. Give your bruschetta starter an extra twist by adding a sprinkle or two of cheese; goat's cheese or mozzarella works best. Bruschetta is best made and eaten on the same day to make sure the ingredients are as fresh as possible. You can prep the topping ahead of time so all you have to do on the day of serving is load each piece of ciabatta bread with a generous helping of tomato mix. A portion of this bruschetta works out at only 134 calories per serving.
