  • Turn the broiler on and let the oven heat while you prepare the ingredients.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the cherry tomatoes and basil chiffonade. In a separate bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the minced garlic and olive oil. Pour this mixture over the tomatoes and basil and stir until they are coated. Season with salt and pepper. Feel free to add more olive oil or garlic depending on your preferences.
  • Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet. Brush each one with a little bit of olive oil. Toast under the broiler for about 2 to 3 minutes until lightly browned and crunchy. Be careful not to burn them.
  • Remove the toasts from the oven. Top each one with spoonfuls of the bruschetta. If desired, drizzle each toast with a little extra olive oil or some balsamic reduction before serving. Enjoy!

  • You can prep the bruschetta mixture up to a couple days in advance. Leave in an airtight container in the fridge until you're ready to prep the baguette slices and serve the dish.
  • Feel free to mix up the ingredients for the bruschetta if desired. Some people like to add mozzarella pearls to the tomato mixture or a slice of mozzarella on top of each toast beneath the tomatoes.
