Non-traditional Bruschetta- Soup Shop Style

½ loaf of a Big Indian Bread – your fav! cut in halves
Butter/olive oil
1 clove garlic, cut in half.
1 medium tomato, cut in half- Riverstone Heirlooms!!
1-2 medium tomatoes, sliced thinly
Balsamic vinegar, optional
Fresh basil, one leaf per slice
Shredded Parmesan cheese or Sharp Cheddar

Toast the slices so they’re crunchy.
Remove the slices from the toaster and place on a serving plate. Butter or lightly drizzle with olive oil.
Lightly, let me say that again, lightly rub a cut side of the garlic clove over the entire surface of the toast slices. It’s really easy to use a heavy hand.
Rub a cut slice of tomato over the surface. You can use a heavier hand here because you want that summery tomato flavor. If some seeds get on the toast, it’s ok.
Cut tomatoes in half and slice thinly.
Drizzle a small amount of balsamic vinegar, optional
Top with shredded Parmesan or cheddar
Place a basil leaf in the middle of each slice. Enjoy!
Remember the to taste the love!
