Bruschetta Recipe

This is one of the recipes we made for our Superbowl celebration.  It was only a party of two since Paul got home from a six day business trip in DC moments before the game began, but this snack made it feel a bit more festive!  I had to scale the recipe back a bit as the original recipe made 24 servings.  For the full recipe, see Our Best Bites.
