Bruschetta (Italian pronunciation: [brusˈketːa]is an appetizer from central Italy whose origin dates to at least the 15th century. It consists of roasted bread rubbed with garlic and topped with extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Variations may include toppings of spicy red pepper, tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, and/or cheese; the most popular recipe outside of Italy involves basil, fresh tomato, garlic and onion or mozzarella. Bruschetta is usually served as a snack or appetizer.
Serves: Serves 2 -4
Step by Step Instructions
- Use roughly equal portions of the veggies, chopped and combined in a bowl. If you use 1 cup of each, then about 6 – 8 large basil leaves will do to balance the flavors. Add some olive oil to the bowl (maybe ¼ cup?) and about 3 TBS of balsamic vinegar. Then add 1 tsp of kosher salt and lots of cracked black pepper. Use a loaf of bread like a baguette or any preferred version of a nice, heavy, slicable something from the bakery section of the grocery store if you don’t make your own. Cut 10 slices, about 1 inch thick. Butter one side (or use olive oil) and toast them under the broiler until slightly brown (about 3 min). Turn the bread and toast lightly on the other side, about 2 min - no butter or oil on the second side. Spoon up the veggie mixture onto the toast. Be sure to get some of the balsamic & oil on each piece. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over all and toast again until cheese melts and begins to brown. Serve immediately.
