Directions

First, set your oven to broil. In a food processor, mix together the feta and cream cheeses. Once they are well blended together, add in the olive oil, reserving about 1/3 cup for later. Also add in the lemon juice, and half of the salt and pepper. Process again and set aside.

Slice the bread and lay them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush both sides of the slices with the remaining olive oil. Broil for 1-2 minutes per side, carefully watching the slices so they don’t burn. Remove the toasted bread from the oven and cool.

While the bread is cooling, chop the tomatoes, basil, and garlic into very small pieces. Place them into a bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons olive oil, the balsamic vinegar, remaining salt and pepper. Once the bread has cooled, spread the cheese mixture on top of each slice and top with the bruschetta. Serve immediately.
