Cut each rectangle in half diagonally both ways, then in half to form 6 triangles. Roll up the triangles starting at the short ends.

Steak Bruschetta Appetizer

About 2 weeks ago I went to a fancy work dinner at a local restaurant. It was one of those places I can’t afford on a normal everyday budget so of course the food was simply amazing.

One of the appetizers was this delicious steak bruschetta. Seriously, everyone was talking about it at work the next day. So we recreated it this past weekend at my parents house and it was a huge success!

steak bruschettaINGREDIENTS:
• French bread
• Baby spinach leaves
• Cherry tomatoes
• Creamy Caesar dressing
• Steak or tenderloin

steak bruschetta ingredientsDIRECTIONS:
Slice your steak or tenderloin into strips and sear. Do not overcook the meat since you will also cook in the oven. Just a quick sear on each side and you’re good to go. Set aside.

Slice the French bread about 1 inch thick and place on a baking sheet.
