Bruschetta is an appetizer whose origin dates to at least the 15th century from central Italy. It consists of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Variations may include toppings of spicy red pepper,tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, and/or cheese; the most popular recipe outside of Italy involves basil, fresh tomato, garlic and onion or mozzarella.


  • 6 or 7 ripe  tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Mozarella cheese
  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves, chopped.
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 baguette French bread or similar Italian bread
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
Dice tomatoes into 1/2 inch pieces; drain over a bowl for 30 minutes to remove excess liquid. Combine all relish ingredients except the Mozzarella cheese in a small non aluminum bowl. Stir well and taste for seasoning. Prepare grill for medium hot grilling, or preheat broiler. Place the bread on the grill; grill or broil each side just until marks of the grill or broiler pan appear. Remove and place on serving platter. Rub the toasted bread pieces on each side with cut surfaces of the peeled garlic cloves. Add cheese cubes to the relish; spoon mixture over each bread slice and then drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoon extra  olive oil over top. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and serve.
Makes 6 servings.
