Balsamic Bruschetta

There is a place near our home we like to go to for 1/2 priced wine and appies every now and again. They have a Bruschetta there that I can’t seem to get enough of. There’s always more tomatoes than bread and I can’t help myself but to grab a spoon and finish it off. Then I came to the realization that I can make this at home! Total eureka moment right?! This my friends is my personal take on bruschetta

  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp mined garlic
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp ground fennel seed
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 fresh baguette
  • Grated cheese, I used the Philadelphia Creamy Garlic & Herbs
  1. Combine all of the above ingredients together in a small bowl and mix until everything is evenly coated.
  2. Adjust salt and sweetness to your personal preference. This is just how we like it.
  3. Transfer to a container and allow it to marinate for at least 1 hour but I would recommend overnight.
  4. Set oven to high broil, slice baguette and place on a baking sheet. Generously cover each piece with cheese and broil until evenly melted.
  5. Serve immediately

Shaved parmesan and freshly chopped parsley make for an appealing and tasty garnish šŸ‘Œ
