Bruschetta is a starter dish from Italy consisting of grilled/baked bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. Variations may include different toppings like chopped tomatoes, onions, beans, cheese, basil, etc.
I am sharing my homemade version with you all today. It’s inception in my kitchen was completely co-incidental. Better half got Buffalo Mozzarella Cheese and we planned to have tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad. Soon enough Bruschetta came in my mind and I used the wholemeal (brown) bread already available at home. Made homemade garlic butter, rubbed on the bread pieces, grilled them, added toppings and Voilà!
