This easy to make dish makes for an excellent appetizer.
Eight ¾ Inch Thick Slices Of Italian Bread (Day Old Bread Will Work Just Fine)
Eight ½ Inch Thick Slices Of Fresh Tomato
Eight Slices Of Sharp Cheddar Cheese (Pre-Sliced Packaged Cheese Works Great)
½ Teaspoon Of Ground Cayenne Pepper Or Ground Chipotle Pepper
½ Teaspoon Of Sea Salt
¼ Cup Of Canola Oil
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Brush both sides of the Italian bread slices with the canola oil. Spread the slices of bread out on a cookie sheet.
Top each piece of bread with a tomato slice. Sprinkle the top of each piece of tomato equally with the sea salt and the ground pepper. Top each tomato slice with a piece of the cheddar cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese melts and browns slightly. Let the bruschetta cool for 3-5 minutes before serving.
