Simple ingredients for a delicious garlic bruschetta, a perfect appetizer or snack for parties, dinner, or any time at all!

Anyone else feel like they could feast on appetizers exclusively? My husband likes to joke that my dream meal is a wedding reception because I love all the tiny bites so much! Give me a plate of veggies, cheese cubes, crackers, and other savory bite-sized foods and I’m a happy camper. 

Rarely do I think to enjoy these foods at home, which is funny because it would be so easy! Recreating my favorite appetizers at home is now on my list of things to do and I think a delicious (and easy!) garlic bruschetta is a great place to start! (Next up? Air fryer candied bacon sounds like a winner!)

This is a great recipe for anyone, but it’s really great for those like myself who don’t feel super confident in the kitchen but want to look like we know what we’re doing. ;) This is one of those recipes that looks much harder to make than it really is!

You can easily customize this recipe to your liking too. Try different seasonings, cheeses, or whatever else you’d like!
