Bruschetta (With or Without Cheese)
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)
13 ingredients
1 servings
I basically used the recipes that I had to my disposal and a little bit of common sense as to what tastes right.I usually make this for just two people and I eyeball the amounts, so they may need to be adjusted... just use what you think looks right, and use as much cheese as you want.Fresh ingredients are best as always, but dried will do.

  • 1 long baguette, cut in half horizontally (as opposed to slicing diagonally, which looks nicer but gets soggy and isn't as efficient)
  • 5 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup olive oil (for garlic spread, should be enough to evenly cover the baguette. you need more olive oil than butte)
  • 4 teaspoons crushed garlic (or about 6 cloves)
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 medium onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (kosher salt is best if available)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano (optional)
  • chopped fresh basil (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese (or any other cheese of your liking that melts well)
