Ingredients

  • 1 Italian baguette loaf sliced
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic peeled and 2 finely minced and one left whole
  • 6 slicer tomatoes about 3 pounds, seeded and diced
  • 2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cup of thinly sliced basil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper.
  • Set the bread out evenly on the pan and brush on the olive oil.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until toasted.
  • Rub the whole garlic on the bread slices to infuse more flavor if desired.
  • Mix the tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, oregano and salt together in a medium bowl.
  • Top the baguette slices with 1-2 tablespoons of the tomato mix and sprinkle on some basil.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Serving size is 2 pieces of bruschetta per person. This recipe makes about 30 slices.
  • Slice your bread as evenly as you can, and not to thick, but not to thin so that it falls apart.
  • Rubbing the toasts with garlic adds a really nice subtle flavor.
  • Fresh basil works great as a garnish, but you could also use another fresh herb like cilantro or parsley if you prefer.
