Make this bruschetta as a savory appetizer topping. It features garlic heads drizzled in oil and baked until tender, plus a combination of diced tomatoes, chopped basil and a mixture of oil, pepper and salt. Our baked garlic is blended with cream cheese and Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese to create a savory, melted base for our chopped tomatoes to cover. Don’t forget a final sprinkling of more cheese!

Ingredients
  • 2 garlic heads, whole
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1/8 tsp. plus dash salt, divided
  • 1/8 tsp. plus dash pepper, divided
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
  • 1-1/4 cups (5 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese, divided
  • 24 slices crusty Italian or French bread, 1/2-inch thick
Directions
  1. Cut top 1/3 off each garlic head, exposing cloves. Place on foil; drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over heads and sprinkle with a dash of salt and pepper. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 1 hour or until tender. Let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, basil, remaining olive oil, salt and pepper in medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Squeeze garlic out of skins. Mix garlic, cream cheese and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese in a small bowl. Arrange bread slices on baking sheet; spread garlic mixture over one side of each slice; sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 12 minutes or until golden brown. Top with tomato mixture and remaining cheese.
