Bruchetta - 9/11/08

 

Bruschetta, pronounce "brus'ket'ta"  consists of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with extra-virgin olive oil, and salt and pepper. Variations may include toppings of spicy red pepper, tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, and/or cheese; the most popular American recipe involves basil, fresh mozzarella, and tomato.

Bruschetta is usually served as a snack or appetizer and it is so easy to make!

Here I am serving the Bruchetta with reduced Balsamic vinegar sauce.  I used fresh and ripe Roma Tomatoes for this dish.  The Roma tomatoes are sweet when they are ripe.

I also served with fresh Mozzarella on top.  The Bruchettas go in oven for a few minutes just enough for the Mozzarella to melt.

I sometimes served the Bruchetta with grilled zucchini and grilled eggplants.  This is very good too!

Basically, Bruchetta is a very versatile dish.  you can topped it with a lot of things as long as there are tomatoes, basil and garlic it is good to go!

 
Preparation work..

Chopping the Roma tomatoes.

 

Basil is added and fried garlic is added and when I am ready to serve I just pour Olive oil, balsamic Vinegar, a pinch of salt and a few grind of pepper and voila it is done.

I am spooning the mixture to my toasted bread.  I used Ciabatta
