Cheesy Bruschetta Toasts
Serves | Crafted with Creamy Original Chao Shreds
ABOUT THE FLAVOR ORIGIN
Garlic, tomato and Creamy Original Shredded Chao... An easy, elevated appetizer to pair with a glass of wine. This recipe was created in partnership with MiiR and Clif Family Winery.
1, 14.5 oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained
1 clove garlic, minced
½ tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp olive oil
¼ cup fresh basil, lightly packed, chiffonade
pinch red pepper flakes
1 ½ tbsp olive oil
1, 12 in. baguette, sliced into ½ inch slices
1 cup Field Roast Chao Creamery Creamy Original Shreds
Turn oven broiler on high.
Mix all bruschetta ingredients in a bowl and set aside, letting the flavors meld.
Meanwhile, prepare your toasts. Slice off the ends of the baguette, then create ½ inch slices of the baguette and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Brush the top of each toast with olive oil. Broil until crispy. (Note: Oven broiler temperatures vary -- keep a close eye on your toasts as some may crisp quickly.)
Remove the toasts from the oven and top each toast with a spoonful of bruschetta mixture. Then top with shredded cheese.
Toasts can now be served or put back into the broiler for a few minutes until the cheese melts.
