I've long loved a good bruschetta, preferably over a table surrounded by girlfriends with a side of Diet Coke, but more often than not these days, it is consumed in my barefoot on a lazy Sunday afternoon. My favorite bruschetta of all time was from a restaurant called Sauce. It's a fast casual place that we frequent often and I always have to order their Caprese Bruschetta...sometimes I'll share it, most often times I won't.
I loved it so much that one day I determined to make a copy cat. They serve theirs on a big slice of french bread, which they slice for easy consumption, naturally I fashioned mine the same way. It became a staple lunch for me and my friends as we visited while our then-toddlers played. When one of those friends was asked to cater a wedding, we determined that we must make a mini version of this bruschetta and our favorite party trick was born...because anything mini is extra delicious!
These are hands-down my biggest crowd pleaser and the best part is, they are SO easy!
Here's what you'll need:
baguette, sliced & lightly toasted
basil pesto, my favorite is from Costco
sliced cherry tomatos, I like to use kitchen shears for a quick slice
balsamic glaze - my favorite is from Trader Joe's
Once you toast your baguettes, spread each piece with a smear of basil pesto, then place on your serving tray. Top with the tomatoes & mozzarella, then drizzle with balsamic glaze.
Make more than you think, everyone always loves them!
Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
