    Cat from Charlotte's Note:

    Unlike oven-baked Bruschetta, this version is tender, yet crispy and olive-oil "buttery" with an Italian flair! This is a garlicky toasted Italian bread with herbs, but what makes it a favorite among our friends is that we "crisp" it in olive oil in a pan, like you might make a grilled cheese sandwich, instead of simply broiling it in an oven, so the bread never gets so hard that it shreds the roof of your mouth.

    1. 1
      Combine the first six ingredients. Let them blend for an hour at room temperature.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven broiler on medium or low, just high enough to brown cheese and warm the tomato mixture.
    3. 3
      Slice up the french bread into 1.5" thick slices. Drizzle olive oil in a hot nonstick pan and place french bread in the pan. Sautee until brown and crisped and then turn over. Add more olive oil as needed.
    4. 4
      When bread is browned evenly on both sides, remove to a baking sheet. Top each slice of bread with a mound of the tomato mixture. Top with a small scattering of mozzarella cheese and put under the broiler until cheese is browned and bubbly.
    5. 5
      Serve immediately.

      This is a great bruschetta. The outside of the bread is crisp, but the inside is nice and soft and moist. I used green onions rather than red because that's what I had. Simple and easy. Thanks for sharing.
