Italian bruschettas are one of my favorite appetizers. I make this often at home. They are a perfect appetizer for an Italian dinner. I learnt making this from a recipe on the internet. I customized the recipe to my own taste. My whole family enjoyed this a lot.
Roma tomato- 1 finely chopped
Onions- 1 finely chopped
Fresh basil-2 Tbsp finely chopped
Garlic- 3 to 4 cloves minced
Mozzarella cheese- 8oz finely grated
Extra virgin olive oil- 2 to 3 Tbsp
Salt and pepper- to taste
1 baguette French bread or similar Italian bread
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the bread diagonally into ½ inch thick slices.
Place the bread slices on the cookie sheet and rub garlic cloves on each slice and drizzle top side of the bread with olive oil using pastry brush.
Add chopped tomatoes, onions and mozzarella cheese evenly on each slice, sprinkle salt and pepper and garnish with fresh basil leaves.
Place the tray on the top rack of the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until all the cheese melts and bread becomes crispy.
