The perfect starter or welcome snacks, Crisp Mouthwatering Bruschetta. It’s an easy appetizer that requires just 10 minutes of prep and packs big flavor. Here you have a recipe of various mixes besides the standard tomato/garlic taste.
The recipe is simple, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it better. The moment the bread comes off the oven/toast/grill, give it a quick rub with a peeled garlic clove. The garlic practically melts into the warm bread. Not only is this the more authentic way to make bruschetta, but it also makes it taste much better.
And I’m giving a few examples to add different combinations to serve the bruschetta’s. One favorite became the Brie de Meaux variant.
It’s best to wait to prepare any bread until right before servings because toasted bread will become tough. Really you should try to only make as much as you can eat in one night, as bruschetta does not store very well.
The definition of Bruschetta? Well, if you ask Wikipedia, it says that it’s toasted bread with olive oil, garlic, and tomatoes.
