Bruschetta is a mouthwatering appetizer that is as simple to prepare as affordable. It’s a delicious and economical appetizer. OG Italian budget Byte recipe is simple to make with toasty bread, served with a deliciously chopped garlic tomato and drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Serve it for your next party and see it disappear in moments! Plus, if you serve it with a sliced baguette like ours, it’s vegan! (Other traditional options, such as boule or ciabatta, can be made using eggs and milk but are not vegan.)
HOW DO YOU PRONOUNCE BRUSCHETTA?
When pronounced bruschetta, CH is a brutal K sound, namely brews-KEHTA. You’re not doing it correctly if you pronounce it with brew-CHEHta (as I do sometimes when I should be aware of the correct pronunciation). However, who cares? The occasional mispronunciation is a fact of the human experience. You’re creating a delicious appetizer by making it from scratch! #winning
WHAT IS BRUSCHETTA TOPPING MADE OF?
There are no limits to what you can do. The options are endless. The traditional bruschetta is a slice of crusty or day-old bread, drizzled with olive oil, toasted, rubbed with garlic, served with chopped tomato and basil torn, and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Simple? Yes. More significant than the whole? 100%!
CAN I PREP BRUSCHETTA AHEAD OF TIME?
You could prepare the tomatoes ahead of time. Chop, salt, and then mix them with dressing. Please place them in a sealed, airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Cut and bake the slices of baguette until they are barely golden. Please keep them in a sealed container lined with paper towels for up to one day. Toast them for a couple of minutes to get them warm before creating them.
