Quick and Easy Bruschetta

This is a great bruschetta recipe. I got the idea when we were over at my friend Suzy's for dinner and she served up something similar. The recipe is quick and easy and works great for a nice appetizer at a get together or before dinner.

Handful of fresh basil
about 10 - 12 grape tomatoes
1/4 of a small sweet onion
drizzle of olive oil
balsamic glaze
1/2 a baguette of your choice sliced into 1/2 inch slices
1/4 cup of butter
1 tbsp garlic seasoning (not garlic salt)

Start by chopping your basil up into little pieces. Then cut your tomatoes into little pieces as well, dice the onion up and add a drizzle of olive oil. Mix it up well.

Mix garlic seasoning into your butter, then spread it onto each slice of bread. Toast your bread in an oven heated to 450 F. for about 5 minutes,

After 5 minutes pull the bread out and add about 1 tbsp or so to each slice of bread and pop back into the oven for another 5 minutes.

Once that's done, pull the bread/bruschetta out of the oven and add a drizzle of balsamic glaze to each slice, and ta-da!! Delicious!!
