  3. Spoon the Bruschetta filling into each avocado halve and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Top with chopped fresh basil and parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

  4. How To Make Balsamic Reduction: Combine 2 teaspoons light brown sugar sugar (sugar is option) with 1/2 cup vinegar in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil.

(If not using sugar, allow plain balsamic vinegar to reduce for 12-15 minutes on low heat.)
