banana pepper bliss

OH YuM! My dear friend Renee gave me some banana peppers from her garden and I concocted this amazing and easy version of bruscetta. Here's what you do...

I call it:  Banana Pepper Bruscetta

1 loaf french bread cut into 1/2 inch slices
4-5 banana peppers- cut in 1/2 inch slices
1 large clove garlic
14-16 oz. can diced tomatoes with the juice squeezed out
1-2 tsps. oregano depending on taste
1-2 tsps. basil depending on taste
olive oil
goat cheese

Make (or buy) a hot, fresh loaf of crusty french bread, set aside. Heat olive oil in a skillet and add the peppers, and garlic, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, oregano, basil, 1/2 tsp. salt and cook til the tomatoes are heated through. Remove from heat, set aside, cover to keep warm. Add 2 tsps. olive oil to a skillet and a tsp. of butter- let melt. Sprinkle salt over skillet (garlic salt makes this even yummier). Take a slice of bread and cook in the skillet till it's yellow and gold on one side...flip and do the same. When it's done put it on a pretty plate and top it with the tomato/ pepper mixture. Drop goat cheese all over the much as you like! Eat, enjoy, repeat.'s soooo good!
