Quick and Easy Grilled Tomato Bruschetta

Tomatoes, Tomatoes, Tomatoes!

What to do with all of the tomatoes! By the end of summer we have had so many tomatoes from our own garden that I run out of ideas on what to prepare. However, fresh homemade bruschetta is always a welcome dish in our home. Because it’s so hearty and fresh we often have bruschetta as our meal! Plus, it makes a great vegetarian option.
