If you love bread - Bruschetta with Sauteed Breakfast Beef Bits

I love bread..in fact my entire family loves bread ! So, as part of the Father's Day makan-makan we had at home last weekend, I made Bruschetta with Roast Beef Bits. This is really an easy-peasy starter to make. Here's what you need :

Bread
Focacia
Garlic Bread
or any plain/wholemeal baguett will do.

* I bought both at the bakery at Sunway Giza's Village Grocer. Even got them to slice it up for me.

Tomato Salsa
1 yellow capsicum - diced
1 red capsicum - diced
4 medium tomatoes - diced
4 shallots - sliced
Coriander - chopped (abt a handful)
Lemon juice from 1 lemon
1 teaspoon white vinegar
Olive oil - abt 1-2 tablespoon
Salt - to taste
Sugar - to taste
Honey mustard - 1-2 teaspoon (optional)

* Put sliced shallot into a deep bowl, add lemon juice season with salt and sugar - taste.
* Then slowly drizzle olive oil - mix well - taste again - add more salt and/or sugar if required.
* Put in the diced vegies - taste again. Add lemon juice/vinegar/salt/sugar if so required
* Lastly, add the chopped coriander. Set aside for the flavours to develope.

The salsa must have a sweet, sour tangy taste to it.

Sauteed Breakfast Beef Bits
200 gm of breakfast beef 
2 tbsp olive oil

* Chop the breakfast beef into small bits.
* Fry in the olive oil until crispy

Cheese
Choose between grated Cheddar or Mozzarella or you can use both ! :)

To assemble the Bruschetta :

* Pre-heat your oven to 160c
* Arrange the sliced breads onto a baking tray.
* Drizzle olive oil over the bread
* Pile small mounts of crispy breakfast beef on the bread followed by the salsa.
* Top with the grated cheese.
* Bake/Grill until cheese becomes gooey and brown around the top and edges.

Serve immediately. Then again, it tastes just as yummy at room temperature.

Note : I forgot to take a picture of the bruschetta I made..so I've borrowed from Mr.Google..:)
