Bruschetta and Basil Olive Oil

Bruschetta and Basil Olive Oil

 

Bruschetta (pronounced brus-KATE-tah), - no "sh" sound here! - is a popular appetizer in Italian restaurants, but the bruschetta known to most countries outside of Italy consists of toasted bread and tomato. While that is also served, did you know that the most common form of bruschetta is actually a simple drizzle of high-quality olive oil on toasted or grilled bread? This is a common and healthy way for families to complete a dinner. Going out to eat in Italy, you'll most likely find "bruschetta mista" - mixed bruschetta - under the appetizers, and what will be served is likely according to the chef's fantasy or what is fresh and in season, with toppings such as: prosciutto, olive spread, pesto, cheese spreads, roasted peppers, the classic caprese with mozzarella, tomato, and basil, and much, much more! The sky is the limit when making your colorful, elegant, yet simple appetizer - just be sure to use high-quality ingredients, and your bruschette miste will be a hit at any dinner party
