Jennica's Bruschetta

Today I made bruschetta...or should I just call it heavenly delight, as an appetizer for dinner. Oh, my goodness was it ever good!!! I think the secret ingredient that really made it amazing was the fresh basil from my sister's garden. Seriously though, I could eat this all day long. =)


Jennica's Bruschetta

Baguettes (found fresh in your local grocery store bakery) sliced into thin rounds
brush on olive oil
mozzarella sliced nicely to fit the bread rounds
ripe vine tomatoes sliced into thin rounds (Roma tomatoes would work as well)
sprinkle tomatoes with a little sea salt and pepper
cut up FRESH BASIL into tiny pieces and sprinkle on top...be generous, its yum mo =)
top it all of with a little shredded Parmesan cheese

Place on cookie sheet and broil until cheese starts to melt and bread gets golden...be careful though it is easy to burn. Finally, serve on a cute white tray...it really makes for a pretty presentation. =) ENJOY!!!!

As an enhancement, reduce balsamic vinegar so it's thicker, then chill it and drizzle it over the toasty little rounds. It's pretty and delicious!

Try the one I do with figs & goat cheese...I know, it sounds weird. It's good though! More of a dessert...the goat cheese cuts the sweetness of the fig a little.
