Garlic Pepper Bruschetta Recipe

  • 5 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 2 garlic cloves minced or 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup onion, thinly sliced, julienned
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 cup yellow bell pepper, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 12 slices French bread (1/2 inch diagonal slices)
  • 3/4 cup Mozzarella cheese
Melt 2 tablespoons butter and add garlic powder or garlic, onion and peppers. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisply tender (3-5 minutes). Stir in basil.

Heat oven to 400°F. Spread one side of bread slices with 1 tablespoon butter. Place onto ungreased baking sheet, buttered-side up. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool slightly.

TIP: This part may be done several hours before final steps.

Divide pepper mixture evenly among toasted bread and sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon cheese. Continue baking until other side is toasted and cheese is bubbly. Serve warm.

To spice this up, increase the amount of garlic and/or add a little garlic to the butter that is spread on the bread slices.
