Bruschetta

Bruschetta Two

Bruschetta makes a simple very enjoyable snack or a great beginning to home entertainment.  This is a scrumptious nibble in between a meal to totally satisfy your taste buds as well as a yummy welcome for your dinner guests In a very casual style.

I like to use quality ingredients to enhance a mouth-watering experience. A trip to my local Farmers’ Market in season, allows me to stock up on my favorite Five Grain Bread, crusty on the outside of the loaf, perfect texture inside to hold up to a hearty sandwich, a dip into a hearty stew and a fresh Bruschetta. I like to buy a couple of round loaves to slice and package for keeping in the freezer.

In season there is nothing like heirloom tomatoes. Another very satisfying tomato choice for me is Nature Sweet Glorys. These small round balls burst with flavor every time. Perfect to pop in my mouth for a healthy snack or cut in half for my Bruschetta topping.

A good quality extra virgin olive oil is always available in my kitchen as is balsamic vinegar. A head of fresh garlic is a staple in my kitchen for me to slice, mince, or chop depending on recipe preparation.

Special items for me to purchase occasionally include fresh basil and a block of Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese which can be stored in the freezer to grate as needed for use in a recipe or top a favorite Italian dish.

Today I prepared a special treat for myself using leftovers in my refrigerator and freezer. Oh, my, this Bruschetta was amazing. It is so easy to assemble.

Bruschetta One

The Process:

Toast a piece of your favorite hearty bread. Grilling the bread enhances the rustic flavor.

Peel a fresh garlic clove and rub across the toasted bread. Discard the garlic clove after using on the Bruschetta.

Grate the Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese on to the warm toasted bread.

Sprinkle a little Extra Virgin Olive Oil on top of the cheese.

Put a fresh, washed and dried basil leaf or two on top of the above layer.

Layer sliced tomatoes for the top of the Bruschetta.

Sprinkle a very small amount of balsamic vinegar on top of the tomatoes for the extra pop of flavor.

 

 

Prepare good, fresh food for yourself and share with your family and friends.

Be creative with your ingredients to be unique in a total, multi-food experience.

Warm regards,

  1. Even looking at that makes me happy. I posted not too long ago on a bruschetta topping, and it was pretty similar in ingredients. Looks delicious! 🙂
