Basil Cream Cheese Bruschetta


This was SO good I couldn't stop eating it!

We munched on this while we were grilling our steaks the other night. It's a good thing I only made half a recipe or we wouldn't have had room for the steaks! Brent doesn't even like olives and he thought this was delicious.

I'm pretty sure it was the cream cheese that really made this stand out....you really can't go wrong with cream cheese on anything!

I can't wait to make this again!


Basil Cream Cheese Bruschetta
(Taste of Home}


12 slices French bread sliced 1/2 in. thick
2 Tbsp. chopped green onions
1/2 c. chopped seeded tomato
1 Tbsp. chopped ripe black olives
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp. minced fresh basil

Brush the bread with olive oil and broil 3-4 minutes until lightly browned. Combine the tomato, onion and olives and set aside. Cream the cheese and basil together and spread on top of the untoasted sides of the bread. Broil 3 minutes longer until cheese is melted. Top with tomato mixture.

I love French bread and experiment on what to put on it, eating it open faced.
