Gather ingredients

  • Make sure the ingredients are fresh and of good quality for best results.

Toast bread

Cut the baguette into slices of about 1 cm thick. Preheat the oven to 180°C or prepare the grill. Place the baguette slices on a baking tray and toast them in the oven for 5-7 minutes or on the grill until crispy. Serve hot and enjoy!


Cutting tomatoes

Cut the tomatoes into small cubes and place them in a bowl. Then add finely chopped garlic, finely chopped basil, salt, pepper and a dash of olive oil. Mix everything together well so that all the flavors blend. Taste and add more salt, pepper or olive oil to taste if necessary.


Prepare mozzarella

Cut the mozzarella into thin slices or cubes, depending on your preference. For slices, place the mozzarella horizontally on a cutting board and cut into even slices with a sharp knife. If you want cubes, first cut the mozzarella into slices and then into equal cubes. This way they can easily be added to salads or antipasti.


Assemble bruschetta

Place the toasted baguette slices on a plate and top them evenly with the tomato mixture. Then place the mozzarella slices on top of the tomatoes. Avoid overlapping the ingredients for a neat presentation. Serve the bruschetta immediately for optimal taste experience.


To serve

Serve the bruschetta immediately, so that the bread is still nice and crispy and the mozzarella is slightly melted. Cut the bruschetta into bite-sized pieces and place on a serving platter. Make sure you serve the dish immediately at the table to maintain the optimal taste experience. Enjoy the delicious combination of fresh ingredients!
