Simple and delicious! First time making a bruschetta and this one is a hit! Thanks for sharing!
I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe!
I don't have a griddle, would the stove work as well?
Awesome! I've always been afraid to make brushetta because of the balsamic glaze. Although I didn't purchase the brand mentioned, I purchased a like kind. I also added fresh grated Parmesan cheese to the tomato/basil mixture. This is so easy and so, so good. Thank you
Barbara, I am so glad you enjoyed the recipe!
How do you make the glaze and how many will this serve? Thank you.
how do you make the balsamic glaze?
Hi! I just would like to give you a huge thumbs up for your excellent information you've got right here on this post.
I will be coming back to your blog for more soon.
Great idea as well is to take a little garlic and toast till light brown and mix with tomatoes, or add fresh parm on the baguette when cooking. I have done both and they are heaven. 🙂
