Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil and set aside.
Slice baguette into 1/2 inch slices. Brush each side with olive oil and bake 10 minutes or until bread is lightly toasted and completely crisp. Remove from oven, cool slightly and rub each piece gently with whole garlic clove.
For the tomato bruschetta topping, add minced garlic, tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper together in a bowl and stir.
To serve, top each slice of bread with tomato topping and drizzle with balsamic glaze, if desired.
*I like a lot of garlic and have adjusted this recipe accordingly. If you are not a garlic person, feel free to adjust the amounts.**The balsamic glaze I use and love is from Trader Joes, but have seen several at different grocery stores.
