I made this a few nights ago on a whim, and it was quite tasty! I wasn't all that hungry, and was a great little mini-dinner snack.

      • baguette that is a few days old
      • olive oil
      • basil, cut into little strips (I use the "burrito" method)
      • Trader Joe's sun dried tomato bruschetta
      • grated parmesan cheese (mine was not fresh, which would have been better)

All I did was slice the bread into thin slices, drizzle a little olive oil on top (which I probably could have done better...I didn't actually drizzle. I used a paper towel to "pat it on" which didn't work all that well actually), plop on some of the bruschetta, sprinkle with cheese and basil, and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 min or so. They came out crispy and delicious! Mmmmm! These would make really yummy appetizers if cut into smaller pieces, and I think goat cheese would have been good too - though maybe a little overpowering. The bruschetta has olives in it as well and is pretty fierce on its own. Also, next time I might save some basil to put on at the end so it's fresh and not crispy from the oven. It was a cool texture all crispy-like, but it didn't really taste like anything anymore.
