Simple Mouth Watering Bruschetta

I have been making Bruschetta for a while now and have never made the same recipe twice. Why might you ask? I haven't found a flawless recipe that I'm in love with and super comfortable making. I truly feel like being comfortable in the kitchen is important in order to make tasty food. On that note, I finally found a Bruschetta recipe that I love and could make every single night. It's so easy and delicious!

- Baguette of bread. I used a french baguette but you could use sourdough, ciabatta even whole wheat.
- Olive Oil
- Heirloom Tomatoes. They are my absolute favorite and are in season right now!
- Garlic Cloves cut in half. No need to dice into tiny pieces for this recipe.
- Full Fresh Basil Leaves
- Mozzarella (if you please, not needed)
- Balsamic Vinegar

1. Pre heat over to 375 degrees and set a cookie sheet aside, no need to grease the pan.
2. Cut bread into about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch pieces. Which ever your prefer
3. Pour about a tablespoon of Olive Oil on each piece of bread and put in oven for about 7 minutes. Yep, without all the other ingredients on it.
3. Cut tomatoes into thin slices, do not dice.
4. Rinse basil leaves and set aside to dry off
5. Remove bread from the oven and then take garlic cloves and begin rubbing each individual piece of bread with the clove. The Garlic should start to melt into the bread and also start to smell gooooood. Do this to all the pieces of bread.
6. Finally put on the Mozzarella, followed by the basil and lastly the tomatoes. Drizzle a bit of olive oil and Balsamic vinegar on top of the tomatoes
7. Place in the oven for about 7-10 minutes.
8. Remove from oven and let sit for a couple minutes to cool.

Now enjoy, and once you are comfortable make your own twists on this recipe. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
