The bruschetta that we all know and love usually consists of tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil and a few other key ingredients. I had some leftover goat cheese in the fridge and decided that adding this to regular ole' bruschetta would probably make for a delicious combination. You will be happy to know that I was correct!


1/4 cup goat cheese
2 cups cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 french baguette
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1.4 teaspoons pepper
4 fresh basil leaves, minced
