Red Gold's Summer Grilling Party Easy Bruschetta Recipe

You’re invited to a party!  Red Gold’s Summer Grilling Party.  So what are you planning on bringing?  Honestly, I’ve never manned a grill so I decided I’d bring the appetizers.  Considering how late I already am to this party, I wanted to cook something that wouldn’t take much time to whip up.  I just finished baking a few loaves of my favorite French baguettes, so I used Red Gold’s recipe for easy bruschetta as a starting point and decided to put my own little spin on it.  Thankfully, this takes maybe ten minutes to put together so I should still make it on time.  I hope they saved a veggie burger for me…

Cuisine: Appetizer
Recipe type: Italian
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Red Gold Petite Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 t olive oil
  • 1 clove minced garlic, or ¼t dried minced garlic
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1-2 T butter or buttery spread, melted
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 French baguette, cut into ½-in slices
  1. Combine tomatoes, onion, olive oil, and chopped fresh basil in a medium bowl. If using the dried garlic, add it as well. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. You can make this topping as much as two hours ahead; simply cover and allow the mixture to stand at room temperature, tossing it occasionally.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and brush slices with the melted butter. If using fresh garlic, add it on top.
  3. Toast bread until tops are golden brown, watching closely to avoid burning. I tend to check about every thirty seconds, because my oven is temperamental.


In just a few days Red Gold will be ending its Red Gold Summer Grillin’ Party on its Facebook page. During the promotion, which ends July 23rd, Red Gold will be having its last weekly drawing for 1,000 aprons in addition to giving away its grand prize of a Big Green Egg Grill and Red Gold Grilling kit.  You can check out the details on their Facebook page and enter here.

    This looks so yummy! I don’t know why I never thought of canned tomatoes for a recipe like this.
    I use them all the time to make a quick marinara for myself – but Oh My! The Bruschetta looks delicious!

    (The only bad thing about bruschetta is that every time I see the word I see Giada De Laurentis – you know, the tv chef who is all teeth, big head, and cleavage – saying “Broos-KET-ta”)
    Ok, so now you know how my mind works!

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh YUM! This looks so good, and even sounds good that I’ve decided to Pin this one for sure. Plus I have all these ingredients in the house except for the bread, but it’s okay I have to go to the store anyway. What a great little appetizer this would make for company too. You could get the long french bread, and make little tiny slices. woo hoo I can taste it now. My gramma (from Sicily) use to make fresh bread, and do all kinds of neat little tricks to it. Man, I wish I would have wrote everything down while she was cooking. 🙁 She was great. Thanks so much for sharing! 🙂 Oh, one more thing! I have a Recipe linky on Fridays I sure hope you can come down and share this one or some of your other recipes with us.j THANKS! See you then my new friend. Going to follow all your social networks 🙂
