Author Notes

The bruschetta that we all know and love usually consists of tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil and a few other key ingredients. I had some leftover goat cheese in the fridge and decided that adding this to regular ole' bruschetta would probably make for a delicious combination. You will be happy to know that I was correct!


  • Makes 10 bruschetta rounds
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 french baguette
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1.4 teaspoons pepper
  • 4 fresh basil leaves, minced
In This Recipe
  1. Turn oven broiler on (500 degrees F)
  2. Quarter tomatoes and add to mixing bowl
  3. Mix olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and basil in another small bowl and pour olive oil mixture over tomatoes
  4. Stir in goat cheese with wooden spoon and place in fridge to chill
  5. Slice baguette into 1/4 inch rounds (roughly 10 slices) and place on baking sheet and broil in oven until browned
  6. Top crostinis with chilled bruschetta mixture
