Cherry Tomato and Bocconcini Bruschetta

The combination of tomatoes, fresh basil and bocconcini is one of my favourites, and throwing it all on top of a bagel is a great option for a lunch (or breakfast!).

The basil garnish, plus pepper and plenty of salt, really brings out the flavour of the tomatoes.

Prep time: 5 mins

Cook time: 5 mins

Serves: 1


  • 1 bagel, halved
  • 4 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 4 cherry bocconcini, sliced
  • 1–2 sprigs fresh basil, leaves picked
  • sea salt and ground
  • black pepper


  1. Toast the bagel to your liking.
  2. Top with the sliced cherry tomatoes, bocconcini and fresh basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Tip: Tossing the topping ingredients together with the salt and pepper a little ahead of time will make them more ‘saucy’.
