This is a great appetizer, especially for entertaining guests. It goes well with any Italian entree, doesn't require a lot of work, and it tastes wonderful!

This was a big hit at our Christmas eve party - it was by far the most liked appetizer of the evening. I had to make a few changes for example my Christmas budget didn't allow for paying 6 for the fresh herbs so I used fresh basil only which I'd bought for another recipe. Also I mxed the cheeses in with the tomatoes and let it all marinate for a few hours. Lastly I pre-toasted the bread so it didn't get soggy and then broiled the assembled bruschettas for about 3 or 4 minutes until the cheese just barely started to melt and the edges of the bread got nice and brown. These are delicous and best of all even at room temp they are great. Read More

Good. Not the best I've had. I would saute the onions and let the ingredients sit in the fridge for at least an hour next time. Read More

This is a wonderful recipe! I used fresh Italian bread instead of French bread only because that is what I happened to have in the house. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. I would certainly make it again! Read More

I don't think I've had a better bruschetta! Originally I went searching for a bruschetta recipe because my boyfriend had never tried it before. I made this and I was so impressed with it (so was he!) that I've made it numerous times for friends and family. Everyone loves it! Read More

Very good! I've made it a few times and it is much better if you can let it sit overnight. I also add an extra clove of garlic. Read More

Awesome! I made it just as written. I toasted the bread slightly before adding toppings. Crispy and delicious! Thanks.:) Read More

I needed something to make with my surplus of late season tomatoes for a gathering at my place and this caught my eye. I wish I could tell you how it was from personal experience. But my guests ate it up before I got to try any! It looked and smelled great and they were all raving about it! So I'll base my rating on their review! Read More

Other than omitting the olives I kept this recipe "as is." Very good! Read More

it's a really good basic bruschetta recipe but it's a little bland. Sprinkling a little bit of black pepper over the cheese before baking would probably be a good addition Read More
