Tomato and Mozzarella Bruschetta


  • Olive oil

  • 6 slices crusty bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices

  • 1 cup (8 oz.) fresh cherry or grape tomatoes, halved

  • 1/2 tsp. garlic, minced

  • 2 tsp. balsamic vinegar 

  • 8 oz. fresh Mozzarella cheese, sliced thin

  • 1/4 cup packed basil leaves, chopped

Turn on broiler to 500 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, garlic and balsamic vinegar. Set aside.

Place bread slices on a baking sheet. Brush olive oil over the tops of each slice. Place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes or until they begin to brown. Remove from oven.

Top each slice with a piece of Mozzarella. Place under the broiler until the cheese begins to bubble and starts to brown. Remove from oven and top each piece with a spoonful of the tomato mixture. Sprinkle with chopped basil, if desired. Serve immediately.
