Bruschetta bites

This is a yummy appetizer that a friend made for a baby shower that I helped with fairly recently, & I made it last night for book club. They are really yummy!

Bruschetta topping (in a glass jar, I got mine at HEB in the pasta sauce section - basically tomatoes, onions, garlic, & herbs) - you'll use about half of it
1 baguette
1/2 cup shredded Italian blend cheese
Olive oil

-Cut the baguette into slices (your preferred thickness; I did about half an inch thick) - discard the ones with holes that go all the way through a slice, because the topping will fall through
-Put a cooling rack on a cookie sheet then lay the baguette slices on the cooling rack
-Brush olive oil on each slice
-Spoon the bruschetta topping on the bread slices
-Put shredded cheese on bruschetta
-Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. The cheese will be melted & the bread will be crispy
