Table of Contents


  • 1 French baguette, sliced into 1/2-inch thick rounds

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (optional)
  • Balsamic glaze for drizzling (optional)


  1. Prepare the Baguette:
    • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
    • Arrange the baguette slices on a baking sheet.
    • Toast in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the edges become golden brown. Set aside.

    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    • Gently toss the ingredients until well combined.
  3. Assemble the Bruschetta:
    • Spoon the tomato mixture generously onto each toasted baguette slice.
    • If desired, sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top of each bruschetta.
  4. Bake or Broil:
    • Place the assembled bruschettas back in the oven.
    • If baking, bake for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
    • If broiling, broil for 2-3 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbly. Keep a close eye to prevent burning.
  5. Finish and Serve:
