Bruschetta Style Toast

This bruschetta is good as appetiser or starter to any Italian dinner – it can also be a meal on its own as a matter of fact. When I have French bread or French style bread leftover, I will cut it into slices diagonally and freeze them. These slices are handy and are also good for this recipe, if you like your bruschetta crispy as they are somewhat dryer than the fresh ones.

6 Slices of French bread (about 2-3 cm thick)
3 Tablespoons of cooked Chorizo, chopped
2 Medium Roma Tomatoes, cubed (discard the seed pulp)
3 Tablespoon grated Cheddar
1 Clove of garlic, chopped
Sea Salt & Black Pepper
6 Basil leaves to garnish

Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Mix tomato cubes and garlic together. Butter the bread slices, pile on with tomato, chorizo and grated cheese. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Bake on baking sheet for about 12-15 minutes. Garnish with basil before serving. (Excuse my senility - I forgot mine when taking the above photo!)
