Recipe: Bruschetta with Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella


  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • basil leaves, chopped or dried (I used dried but if I had fresh I would have used it)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  •  1 baguette French bread or similar Italian bread
  • olive oil  in a misto sprayer or have a brush to spread it


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • rinse and dice tomato
  • slice bread and place on baking pan.
  • lightly coat the bread with olive oil spray or with brush
  • bake bread till it is lightly toasted, around 5 minutes or so.
  • in a glass bowl combine tomato, basil, olive oil, and vinegar
  • add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • slice mozzarella  and place slices on the bread right out of the oven
  • spoon tomato and basil topping over the mozzarella
Serve and enjoy! Makes a great appetizer or lunch.


  1. mmm, That sounds pretty freakin' delicious, and also simple to make. I need to start doing a lot more cooking at food - I didn't realize it, but I spent $70 on fast food and take out this past week! SHAME.

  2. Yum...that looks good! Might have to try that this week.
