Alexia Garlic Baguette Bruschetta
Alexia uses only all-natural ingredients. Their garlic baguette is made in the traditional style with crispy French bread and their own special blend of real butter, robust garlic, and spices. I knew their bread would be perfect for the bruschetta that I wanted to make.
1 package Alexia Garlic Baguette, baked according to package directions
6 or 7 ripe plum tomatoes, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
6-8 basil leaves, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, to drizzle over bread
In bowl, add diced tomatoes, garlic, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Toss. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top bread slices with tomato mixture and lightly drizzle with remaining olive oil. Enjoy!
