Very tasty. A little Tabasco can be added for extra spice.


  1. Chop tomatoes into tiny pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, and basil.
  3. Amounts will vary depending on your taste.
  4. Cut baguette into medium slices and brush both sides with olive oil.
  5. Bake at 350 until almost crisp.
  6. Spoon bruschetta mixture onto baguette slices.
  7. Top with parmesan and bake at 350 until parmesan is mostly melted.

This recipe is awesome! I recently made this for the first time and prepared it for a get-together at a friends house. Everyone raved about the bruschetta! Now they want the recipe too. :) Thanks for sharing this tasty appetizer.

I really liked this recipe! I made this tonight, I had never made bruschetta before. It was easy and yummy! The only changes I made was 1) I couldn't find the bread it called for...had to use french bread cut small. And 2) I used feta cheese and a little mozarella and fresh chopped basil with roma tomatoes. My dinner guests really really thought it was great!! Two thumbs up!!Thanks for posting EPM!!
