Okay, I noticed a lot of you mentioning making either bruschetta or crostini.

Probably a dumb question, but what's the difference between the two? Is it just what ingredients you put on top, or how you prepare it?

I've only had one year of college Italian, a few years ago, but I'll try to help.

Technically, "crostini" means "little toasts" in Italian. You toast very thinly sliced bread, then top it after it comes out of the oven.

Bruschetta comes from the Italian "bruscare" which has something to do with grilling... and I believe you top the thicker bread slices BEFORE putting them in the oven... or grilling them.

So, I would treat "crostini" as thin, toasted breads that are topped after baking off and bruschetta as thicker breads that are topped and cooked all-together in the oven or over a grill.

Honestly, as much I`de Like to claim credit for this idea as a new recipe, I have seen it before but I just can`t remember where or further details about it. I Could be wrong but I Think it MAY have been a Russian recipe?
