I've never had an appetizer with this sophisticated flavor profile that my big, burly outdoorsy guy friends love so much. (Their wives are equally amazed). I skip the last couple of steps involving re-broiling with the mozarella because I'm usually taking this to someone elses's house, which makes that completely impractical. I just make the tomato mixture (chiffonading the basil is KEY) brush the baguette slices with olive oil and broil them under the broiler for exactly 3 minutes. Watch them the whole time or you may burn them. Then, throw the baguette slices in a plastic bag to transport and then to put in a bowl or on a serving platter once you arrive. Take the tomato mixture in a serving bowl. People get to regulate how much bruschetta goes on their bread and the toasted baguettes are yummy for hours, regardless of temperature. This is my favorite crowd-pleasing appetizer. Even kids love it!
