8 cloves garlic, divided
8 fresh basil leaves
2 tbsp Olive Oil
First you need to chop up your basil, 3 cloves of the garlic and tomatoes.
Put in a bowl and top with balsamic. You want to be generous with the balsamic. I never measure it. I just pour it over and eye it. You will be draining off the balsamic, but it needs to marinade because that is what will "cook" the garlic. Toss to coat and let it marinade for a while. Add a few dashes of salt and pepper.
Take out of the oven and slice.
With one of the other garlic cloves, rub down the bread to give the garlic flavor
Fry the bread in the heated olive oil to toast it.
The bread will absorb the olive oil.
Put the toasted bread on a plate and top with bruschetta mixture.
