I got this recipe from my mother’s drawer in her dining room. It must have been there for over ten years. It was mailed to her by the realtor that sold them their home over 15 years ago. It was perfect timing since my mind was trying to decide what to bring to trivia night. It was fantastic! Friends loved it.
To make it a lot easier and to my liking, I brought already broiled baguette pieces from the local grocery store. Also, I prefer my bruschetta cold. It was chilled in the refrigerator before taking it to trivia night. Another alteration is that I chopped the onions instead of cutting i with long strands. Not a fan of stringy slimy onions. It turned out great and has such a good flavor.
