A warm baguette. A glass of wine waiting. The need to put the week to bed.
One of my favorite treats to enjoy at the end of a busy work week is bruschetta topped with the classic combination of basil, tomato and mozzarella. Few ingredients, little effort and time, and an amazingly delicious appetizer. There are seemingly endless variations of this combo, but for me I like a little bread, warm, gooey cheese, a fresh tomato and the beautiful taste of basil – comfort food my friends!
Paired with a chilled glass of rosé (or your choice of wine), and I have forgotten all about my past week’s woes.
~recipe note: If you want the cheese to bubble more swiftly, once the bread has been toasted at 400 degrees, turn the oven to Broil and do so for about 1-2 minutes.
