Stacey's Fancy Bruschetta

Sorry for the lag in recipes, I've been busy with random stuff this week.  Anywho, I am preparing for a much anticipated girls' night tomorrow night, so I've been prepping my appetizers the past few nights.  This way I don't have to do everything the night of.  Plus, it lets my marinated appetizers marinate longer!  :)

This is one that I got from my sister-in-law, Stacey.  It is a bit tedious for bruschetta, but WELL WORTH IT.  The taste of the fire roasted peppers makes all the difference!  Besides, it's kinda fun peeling them!


2 red bell peppers, seeded and halved
2 green peppers, seeded and halved
4 tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh basil
1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh parsley
2 garlic cloves, minced
dash of salt and pepper
1 baguette


Place halved peppers on a cookie sheet, skin side up, and broil for 20 minutes.  After broiling, place peppers in a ziploc bag for 10 minutes to steam.  Peel skin off peppers and chop peppers.  Add chopped tomatoes, onion, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, basil, parsley, garlic and salt and pepper.  Let marinate.  When ready to serve, slice baguette into 1/2 inch thick slices and toast on both sides until crispy.  Spoon tomato mixture onto each baguette slice and serve.
