Sun Dried Tomato Bruschetta

.


Snowed in for days is all I can say until today and we are actually iced in!
I am about to lose my ever loving mind! Our school district even permitted school today without a delay and not one plow has been by. Remind me again why I don't live in a warm place? Not to mention my computer finally crashed last week and I had to splurge on a new one. I new it was coming can you say procrastinate? Any who last week we had a shindig for my loves birthday and I made this. 




Sun dried tomato bruschetta. The best thing is this can be made in advance and set aside until you are ready. Prep time for any gathering is super important. I love bruschetta it is straight up delish! But this takes it to a whole new level with the addition of sun dried tomatoes. There’s just something about fresh, juicy, bright tomatoes, mixed with balsamic vinegar, sweet basil, and spicy fresh garlic piled on top of freshly toasted bread that’s just incredibly satisfying. 

                          

This simplicity of this dish along with its gorgeous looks will have your guests gobbling it up in no time! Mine sure did. This will be a new addition to my appetizer menu. It's a keeper for sure!
