Mozzarella, Basil and Garlic Bruschetta

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 5 mins

This quick and easy snack is also wonderful as a warm, light starter to a Mediterranean dinner. If you like anchovies, you can add a half a fillet to each bruschetta too.


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Slice the baguette into 10 slices.
  3. Spread garlic butter on each slice.
  4. Tear basil leaves (tearing releases the flavour, whereas cutting it does not produce the same effect) and place one on each slice.
  5. Cut the anchovies to size, and place on top of basil.
  6. Slice the mozzarella into ten slices and place one on top of each bruschetta.
  7. Sprinkle salt & pepper (if using anchovy use less salt).
  8. Place under the grill for five minutes or until the cheese bubbles and begins to brown.
  9. Serve warm as a starter or snack.
  10. Enjoy!

Great flavor loaded bruschetta We loved it. I used skim milk Mozza, no butter just a spray of butter flavor no oil spray on the bread and it was still Mmmmmm Don't miss out on the anchovies they really set it up.

Delicious! I left out the anchovies since DH is picky but they were great without. I minced up a ton of garlic w/ about 4T. of butter and buttered both sides of each piece. I really liked how easy, yet flavorful it was!
