Last night I decided to make some bruschetta. I have tried this recipe several times and each time I've added something extra to enhance the taste of these. I thought I'd share it with you. It is deLish!
Here is a photo of what I used:
First you slice about 1/2 loaf of a small baguette. I got about 22 1/2" slices from it. It pretty much fills up the cookie sheet.
In a preheated oven of 450 degrees F, I put the sliced bread into the oven for 5 minutes until nice and toasty brown. After removing, I placed a thin layer of minced garlic, followed by a slice of tomato and again added a sprinkle of fleur de sel and cracked pepper to each slice. Then I added a slice of mozzarella on top of each toasted tomato sliced bread and again sprinkled salt and pepper. I topped each slice with a garnish of ribboned basil and a quick brush of olive oil and back into the oven for another 5 minutes.

Any way you cut it these are wonderful!
