This combination of rich smoky ham, tangy mustard, melty cheese, and ripe tomato is perfect for a lavish breakfast with a fried egg or served with a bowl of soup.

Sweet caramelized garlic is the star of this extra-savory take on garlic bread.

Cannot wait to try this with fresh garden tomatoes! I agree that the addition of garlic sounds even better…

Rozanie on 8.20.2010

This sounds like a great way to use up some of my fresh tomatoes!

Mama2dutchies on 7.6.2010

Yum! I have a grilled bruschetta chicken I will have to try this on! Though I might have to toss in a titch of garlic

Very tasty! Added 3 cloves crushed garlic….that made it perfect!

SmilingEyes on 7.25.2011

Made this over the weekend and it was a huge HIT at our family bbq! I sliced french bread (not cutting all the way thru) placed sliced fresh mozzarella between each slice, popped it in the oven for 5 minutes on 350, topped with this amazing recipe and sprinkled chopped macadamia nuts on top! AMAZING! Thank you for sharing this with us.

Leah on 7.9.2011

Great recipe! My husband and I devoured it! The only thing I did differently was toast it in a pan with butter and use one raw clove of garlic to rub over all the slices of bread before putting the topping on. I also think this would be a great dish to bring to someones home because you could transport it separately, putting the topping on once you arrived at your hosts home. Thanks for the recipe!

Laura on 6.6.2011

Really good! Like others, I added garlic powder (1/4 teaspoon). I mixed mine with hot orzo pasta and topped with Parmesan for a light summer dinner. Yum!

Michellejoan5 on 6.5.2011

Excellent. Almost ate it all myself before I got it to the table! Roasted some garlic and rubbed it on french bread top with this and it’s perfect.


What is Bruschetta and Crostini

To put it bluntly, both bruschetta and crostini are basically toast with toppings. But it’s how the bread is sliced, as well as, the toppings that makes all the difference between a ho hum bruschetta or crostini and an out-of-this-world one.

Still, if you’ve never made bruschetta or crostini, here’s a bit of background—just in case.

Traditionally, bruschetta is toasted whole slices of bread that is traditionally browned over coals (although not always). Crostini, on the other hand, are sliced toasted rounds. You’ll find in many relaxed foodie circles that many folks use these terms interchangeably.

Bruschetta is considered an antipasto or appetizer dish from Italy. Diners usually rub toasted bread with garlic, followed by a drizzle (or two) of olive oil. The bruschetta may or may not be topped with chopped tomatoes, mashed beans or a mix of sliced fresh or cured meats, chunks of seafood and/or cheese, hard or soft.

However, here in the U.S., bruschetta is considered a canapé. Usually, these small bites are served as hors d’oeuvres with drinks (alcoholic or not) and before the main dish. Note: the bread may or may not be toasted and most often a variety of one or more ingredients are placed on the bread.

Keep in mind that you can serve bruschetta or crostini as an appetizer or as a meal in itself. You decide.


Allergy Friendly, Easy Bruschetta Recipe? Sure!

This recipe can be used on top of gluten-free bread with Daiya cheese as your dairy-free option. And it’s also fabulous on top of salads and even over fresh pasta. Sometimes, if I make pasta with pesto sauce, I add this as a topping along with Daiya cheese. This is also amazingly good if you want to make bruschetta pizza. We like it with a pesto or a red sauce base, and then the bruschetta on top.

In the summer, my sister makes this recipe ahead using allergy-friendly ingredients, and we each add our own cheese and the whole family enjoys it together. So if you have family gatherings where some are dairy-free and others aren’t this is great.

  • 4 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • ½ cup Daiya Mozzarella style shreds or vegan Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, minced
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground pink Himalayan salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon red pepper flakes, crushed
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 gluten-free baguette (8.4 ounces), cut into half-inch slices
  • ¼ cup raw/organic butter or raw organic coconut oil, softened
  • 8 ounces Daiya Mozzarella style shreds or fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  1. In a small bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients.
  2. Spread baguette slices with butter. Top each with Daiya Mozzarella style shreds or fresh mozzarella cheese slice/s.
  3. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 3 to 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  4. With a slotted spoon, top each slice with about 1 tablespoon tomato mixture.

How do you serve bruschetta? As an appetizer, or a side dish? I’ve been to many social events, including weddings, where bruschetta was served as an appetizer. It feels so fancy served with some sparkling cider!

Bruschetta

In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and stir, lightly frying for about a minute, removing before the garlic gets too brown (it can be golden.) Pour into a mixing bowl and allow to cool slightly.

Add tomatoes, balsamic, basil, and salt and pepper to the bowl. Toss to combine, then taste and add more basil if needed, and more salt if needed (don't oversalt, though!) Cover and refrigerate for an hour or two if you have the time.

Cut the baguette into diagonal slices to allow for the most surface area possible. Melt half the butter in a large skillet and grill half the bread on both sides, making sure they're nice and buttery. Cook till golden brown on both sides. Repeat with the other half of the butter and the other half of the bread.

To serve, give the tomato mixture a final stir, the spoon generously over the slices of bread. Serve on a big platter as a first course or appetizer.

Hardly anything makes my tastebuds jump up and down and do flip-flops more than bruschetta. I&rsquove loved it for more than half my life and used to regularly devour it during my vegetarian days, before Marlboro Man roped my heart and introduced me to the world of steak cooked in sizzling butter. And I still love it today every bit as much as I ever did.

Here&rsquos the thing about Bruschetta: It can be a snack. It can be an appetizer. It can be a salad. It can even be a main course if the whole &ldquoWhere&rsquos the Beef?&rdquo thing isn&rsquot an issue for you.

Either way, it&rsquos divine. And it&rsquos so very, very easy to make.

The Cast of Characters: Red grape (or cherry) tomatoes, yellow grape (or cherry) tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, baguette, and (not pictured) salt, pepper, and butter.
