Bumping it up, since we were down for a bit. Lost it when I wanted to add, you can add almost any toppings of choice -- bay shrimp, shrooms, on and on; wrap it up, put it in the freezer and heat it up.

You can alter the toppings to suit your taste -- just about any toppings you like on a pizza -- bay shrimp, shrooms, on & on; and slice the bread thinly as appys. Make up a few varieties of loaves, and mix them up on the platters.

Do you have your basic cheese and fruit platters? Quick, easy, - and no bread!

I made it for the first time just a couple of days back from a link that Michael had given me. It was delicious!

Instead of the olive oil I smeared some flavoured butter. In it I put minced garlic, dried italian herbs and some chilli flakes. Infact if you just want some cripsy bread with a hot cup of tea you could just bake this without the tomato and cheese.

Hey gang. Get real.

Serving Bruschetta at a houseparty (in your own home) to about 10-20 guests is just not feasible unlesss you have a cook.

It is perfect for two (or even four) but Bruschetta for more than that - no way.

Italian bruschetta

Hi IcyMist, I love bruschetta too!
The original Italian version is with tomatoes, olive oil, basil (fresh is better), salt and garlic.
First, cut tomatoes in small cubes and marinate them with olive oil, salt and basil, minimum 30 minutes, to let the oils of basil and tomatoes melt together.
Then take the bread slices and bake them for a few minutes, on both sides.
When they're still warm, take one garlic clove and rub it on bread. A drop of oil, and just add the tomatoes.

If you prefer, you can cook tomatoes: I'd rather prefer first version, anyway some people like warm bruschetta.
In this case instead of marinating, cook them with oil and salt, as far as they become soft.

In my web site I published other appetizer to combine to this.
Good appetite!
Simona

It depends on cheese, of course, but I really like to combine 'pecorino chees' with pears or grapes (fresh fruits) and honey, expecially chestnut tree quality.
I cut pecorino in small slices and lay into a wide dish, next to pear slices and a small cup of honey and walnut. Otherwise you can drop honey (drop by drop how to decorate) directly on chees.
During winter time, instead of fresh pears I use pear jam. If you like I'll publish here the recipe for Pear Jam with Red Wine.
