Tomato, Basil, and Goat Cheese Bruschetta
Makes about 2 ½ cups
  • 2 cups Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, finely minced (more, if you love garlic like I do)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper to taste
  • 1 baguette
  • 1 whole clove garlic, sliced in half
  • ¼ cup to ½ cup crumbled goat cheese (use the amount you desire to your taste)
  1. In a mixing bowl, add your chopped tomatoes, minced garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, and salt and pepper. Mix all together and set aside. If you would like, you can make this a few hours in advance to allow time for the flavors to mix together.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Slice your baguette and place slices on a cookie sheet. Place in oven for ten minutes or until lightly browned and toasted. Remove from oven and rub your garlic halves on all of the slices. Sprinkle your goat cheese crumbles on the warm baguettes and then spoon your tomato mixture on top. Buon appetito!
