  • 1/4 cup Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 2 teaspoons fresh minced garlic
  • 1 baguette, halved lengthwise

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Step 1) Position oven rack in upper third of oven. Heat oven to 450°F.
  2. Step 2) Combine corn oil and garlic. Place baguette cut-side-up on a baking sheet. Brush oil mixture onto cut surface of each baguette.
  3. Step 3) Spread goat cheese evenly onto each bread surface, using a spatula. Distribute tomato slices over goat cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then top with basil and shredded cheese.
  4. Step 4) Bake bruschetta for 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese melts and bread browns at edges.
  5. Remove from oven; cool slightly and transfer to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife and sawing motion, slice diagonally into serving pieces.
