Tips for Making the Best Bruschetta
To enhance your tomato bruschetta, use crusty bread that can stand up to ingredients like juicy tomatoes, oil and vinegar. Crusty bread will also not absorb the moisture of your ingredients as fast. Heirloom tomatoes offer an artisan flair to tomato bruschetta, while a drizzle of balsamic reduction before serving lets the tomato’s sweetness take center stage.
This dish also allows your creativity to truly shine with a range of bruschetta appetizer ideas that let you make it your own. You can add different cuts of sliced meats, like soppressata, prosciutto and salami, to your toasts to make the dish a bit more hearty. Or keep it vegetarian by experimenting with different earthy mushrooms or bright lemon, peas and avocados.
You can even take this toasted bread appetizer in a sweet direction with dessert bruschettas featuring strawberries and hazelnut spread or apricots and cream cheese. There are countless ways you can create a bruschetta that everyone around your table will enjoy.
