Sweetwater Tavern Bruschetta

When I was in Virginia with my family they took me to a restaurant they loved called Sweetwater Tavern. It really was quite yummy, but my favorite thing was their Bruschetta. Since those restaurants are currently only back east, I made my own copy cat recipe of the dish.

What you need;

a Baguette, or really any sort of firm bread
Olive oil
Balsamic vinegar 
Rosemary or Italian seasoning
garlic and onions optional

Slice the bread in fairly thick slices. Drizzle with olive oil.

In a bowl marinate chopped tomatoes and onions, about 1/2 cup  balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon rosemary or Italian seasoning, and finely chopped garlic. I try to marinate it for at least 20 minutes.

Top bread slices with mozzarella and broil until melted. Top with tomatoes and marinade. Best fresh.

These little beauties are so easy and so yummy! You can also use large slices of bread and just use Roma tomatoes, very yummy no matter what.


Tune in at the end of this week and I will share my favorite dessert recipe using Balsamic vinegar!
