  1. easy bruschetta recipePreheat the oven to Broil. If you have broil options, choose low. If you don't have a broil setting, 500 degrees works well.
  2. Slice baguette into 1/2" thick slices. You should have about 24 thin slices to toast.
  3. Place slices on a baking sheet. No need to add oil or non-stick spray.
  4. Toast baguettes for 2-3 minutes. I'd start lower and add more time if needed. Your goal is to toast the bread slices so they are warm and crispy while keeping the center of the bread somewhat soft. Two minutes is almost always the perfect time, but keep an eye out! Once the edges are looking a golden brown toasted color, you're all set!
  5. Top toasted slices with cottage cheese. We love Shamrock Farms Cottage Cheese! There are a freshness and quality you can taste in each Shamrock Farm's product. The cottage cheese is delicious and sets the perfect base for a kid-friendly bruschetta.

We absolutely love using Shamrock Farms cottage cheese in this recipe! They are an Arizona company that believes in cared-for cows, a state-of-the-art farm, and no growth hormones like rBST. What makes Shamrock Farms so good is its proven three-generation, hand-crafted approach to making the purest freshest products. We know that cared-for cows means high-quality, better-tasting milk.

Also, be sure to check your local grocery store for Shamrock Farms cottage cheese which has a bold new look, but the same delicious and hand-crafted taste that you love.
