Double Tomato Bruschetta

The cast of characters:)

every things mixed in...

The final product.

6 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, packed in oil
1-3 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil (or to your liking)
1/4- 1/3 cup fresh basil, stems removed
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. ground black pepper
1 French baguette (or what ever bread you want to use)
2 cups mozzarella or Parmesan cheese (or a mix of both)

*In a large bowl combine the tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, basil, salt, and pepper. Allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes.
*Next, cut the bread into small slices. On a baking sheet, arrange the bread in a single layer. Broil for 1-2 minutes, until slightly brown.
*Lastly, spread the tomato mixture evenly over the baguette slices, top the slices with cheese and broil until cheese is melted.

This is a great appetizer. I originally got this recipe off of "allrecipes.com" I only changed it slightly. I have also served this "buffet style". Mix up your tomato mixture and broil your cheese right on top of the bread and then let people add there own mixture to the bread. This works really well. Very yummy:)
