Balsamic Mozzarella Bruschetta

What makes our Balsamic Mozzarella Bruschetta so fantastic is the flavor combination and the gooey fresh mozzarella cheese! This is a family favorite!

*Printable Recipe: Balsamic Mozzarella Bruschetta

Ingredients:

  • Small dollop of Spiceworld Premium Minced Squeeze Garlic *

  • 2 tsp virgin olive oil

  • French baguette bread cut into diagonal 1/4” thick slices

  • 2 tsp virgin olive oil

  • 1.5 tsp Tastefully Simple Balsamic and Basil Dipping Oil** OR 1 tsp of Balsamic Glaze

  • ¼ tsp salt (or to taste)

  • ¼ tsp pepper (or to taste)

  • ¼ tsp Italian seasoning (or to taste)

  • ¼ tsp of onion powder (or to taste) or 1/2 of a small onion diced

  • Dollop of Spiceworld Premium Minced Squeeze Garlic

  • 1 large, ripe tomato or two small tomatoes cut up into very small chunks (omit as many seeds as possible)

  • Fresh mozzarella cut into 1 x 1″ square that is about a ¼” thick

Directions:

Mix the small dollop of Spiceworld Squeeze Garlic with virgin olive oil in a tiny bowl. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush oil-garlic mix onto bread slices. Put bread slices oil-side down on a cookie sheet. Crisp bread for about 5-6 minutes in a 375 degree oven. Remove from oven and flip bread over.

Place one slice of mozzarella on each slice of bread on the oil-side. Mix remainder of ingredients together in a bowl adding the tomatoes last. Gently toss the tomatoes in the seasoned oil. Spoon the tomato mix on top of mozzarella. Lightly drizzle balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze over bread slices. Bake at same temp for another 5-8 minutes until cheese is melted. Serve immediately out of the oven.

*Spiceworld Squeeze Garlic is garlic that is already minced in a squeeze bottle. A regular garlic clove could be used instead of dollops of squeeze garlic: Mince garlic clove, use 1/3 of minced garlic with butter to brush onto bread slices and use the remainder 2/3 of minced garlic in the seasoned oil.

**We have use Tastefully Simple brand Balsamic and Basil Dipping Oil. When we ran out of that, we found that Balsamic Glaze was just as yummy!

We’ve found that making the tomato mix beforehand and letting it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours also helped bring out all the flavors!
