Easy Bruschetta Recipe
To make the bruschetta will, you need:
1 baguette (you can use any bread of your choice, I prefer sourdough or a french baguette)
1 pint of cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove of minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
3-4 fresh basil leaves
½ ball of sliced mozarella cheese
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Slice the baguette into 1/2-inch slices, and then place them on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until they are lightly browned.
Meanwhile, prepare the toppings. Start by chopping the cherry tomatoes into small pieces. Then, mince your garlic. In a small bowl, mix together the chopped tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.
Once the bread is crispy, add the optional mozzarella cheese and place your cheese upon the toasted bread slices. Next, spoon the tomato mixture onto each slice. Then, drizzle with the balsamic glaze and top with fresh basil. Serve immediately.
