Balsamic-Tomato Cheesy Garlic Bread


Last night Greg and I made garlic bread to go with our dinner. I was craving it again today, but I thought: how can I make garlic bread even better?! Cheese. Tomatoes. Balsamic drizzle. This recipe is simple, but perfect for a light lunch or an afternoon snack. You could also double recipe and cut each piece in half to have it as a side for dinner.

So many opportunities to make this delicious recipe! What have you all been cooking lately? Its getting chilly here so we are all about the pastas right now! However, I do get tired of pasta eventually so I think we will move on to curry soon. Expect a curry recipe in the near future!
