Bruschetta's are ideal for entertaining. They are bite size, easy to make and super adaptable for everyone's taste. These inspiring appetizers start with the basic loaf of Italian bread cut into small rounds and lightly toasted. Each piece is then topped with a different combination of meat, cheese, and/or vegetable making the variety of bruschettas limitless.
Working with ingredients I had in the fridge I came up with 3 new toppings for bruschetta which were a huge hit at a recent impromptu cocktail party.
The Artichoke & Prosciutto was just that. I used fresh artichoke hearts from Melissa's Produce topped with thinly sliced prosciutto and chopped fresh basil.
The Winter Caprese is a mix of homemade pesto, oven roasted tomatoes and thinly sliced fresh mozzarella cheese.
The Sirloin Steak with Fried Onions & Horseradish was probably one of my favorite combinations to date. A thin layer of prepared horseradish is topped with medium rare slices of steak and caramelized onions.
As you can see the possibilities are endless when it comes to this fun finger food. Be sure to experiment to find your favorite combination of toppings.
