"Bruschetta makeover is what I call it. The flavor combination with the tomatoes and cream cheese is perfection. This appetizer goes a long way - another crowd pleaser, that's for sure."

  1. Whisk together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, basil, and garlic in a bowl. Stir in the chopped tomatoes; season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover; place in the refrigerator to marinate for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread the bread slices in a single layer on a large baking pan.
  3. Bake in the oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Remove to cool on a wire rack.
  4. When the bread is cool, spread the semi-soft cheese evenly over each slice. Using a slotted spoon, spoon some of the tomato mixture over each slice.
