It is perfect bbq weather too. I like to have something to nibble on while waiting for the meat to cook so decided on some simple bruschetta's.
We love our speciality breads & often buy several on the weekend for the house; any that is left is sliced & frozen to enjoy whenever we like.
I found herb & rosemary bread & date & walnut bread slices so savoury & sweet breads as our base.
This is what I used:
Ripe vine tomatoes
We are all trying to stick to healthy eating so my foodies bought this prepara oil mister
prepara-tabletop-oil-mister & it is absolutely brilliant
Choice of a sweet & a savoury bread (& great grandma's bread knife)
Fresh garlic, crushed
Chillies - we all like it hot & spicy
The fabulous large IKEA lämplig chopping board that is perfect for this
I did not first toast the slices & they were just fine
Misted with organic rapeseed / canola oil (much less calories)
tomatoes chopped & drained in a small colander
Fresh herbs from our herb pots
Garlic, tomato, herbs, chillies & salt & pepper
Ready for the hot oven
Perfect to snack on while we catch up & wait for our bbq burgers
Home made pure beef burgers (mine with some Nando's sauce on top), home made sweet potato wedges, fresh coleslaw, beetroot & spinach leaves - absolutely perfect summer food!
..... and yes, that is a glass at the top of the plate - chilled white wine!
What are your favourite summer snacks?
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend
