Looking for the perfect appetizer any time of year? Look no further than this Rustic Bruschetta made with Pompeian Gourmet Selection Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This simple, healthy snack is made flavorful by the addition of first cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, expertly crafted by Pompeian's family of farmers.
Heat 1 tablespoon Pompeian Gourmet Selection Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic to skillet and cook 1 minute, stirring often.
Add tomatoes, basil, Pompeian Organic Balsamic Vinegar and parmesan to skillet. Stir together until well blended and warmed through, about 3 minutes.
Transfer tomato mixture to a bowl and wipe out skillet
Working in batches, heat 2 tablespoon of the remaining Pompeian Gourmet Selection Extra Virgin Olive Oil at a time in large skillet over medium heat.
Add four bread slices to pan and flip immediately so both sides are coated with oil. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining oil and bread slices, reducing heat to medium-low if pan gets too hot.
Top bread slices with tomato mixture and serve immediately.
