    1. 1
      Whisk together chopped garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper, and basil.
    2. 2
      When combined slowly drizzle in oil.
    3. 3
      Add tomatoes and let sit for 20 minutes at room temp.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile back at the bat cave, toast the bread.
    5. 5
      This can be done either in the toaster (if it's got really wide slots) or under the broiler (if using this method watch closely so it doesn't become a brickette).
    6. 6
      When the bread is toasted rub each piece, on one side, with the whole garlic pieces.
    7. 7
      Place the bread on a cookie sheet and top with tomato mixture.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle on a little cheese and broil till the cheese melts (you can skip that last broiling bit and it's equally as wonderful).
    9. 9
      Serve immediately.
    10. 10
      The tomato mixture also makes a wonderful vinegrette for an antipasto salad.

      Nice and easy! This has great flavor, and eye appeal. It was easy to put together and bake. I followed your directions and did not alter anything in the recipe. A nice variety of flavors and textures. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I will be using this one again!

      Delicious bruschetta!!! What an amazing, tasty appetizer & so easy to pull together. Your family or guests will be amazed because this bruschetta is equal, if not better than any you will find prepared by the best Italian restaurants. I made some simple adjustments by adding 1/3 cup of finely diced red onion & also upped the balsamic to 1 tablespoon. For the best taste, use the finest EXTRA virgin olive oil you can find (or afford!) & you will feel like you are in Italy!
