Bruschetta – the delicious Italian appetizer

Bruschetta is the traditional Italian starter that we all crave whenever we go to Italian restaurants. With crusty, heated bread served with olive oil, garlic and a number of other toppings this dish is extremely satisfying and so more-ish it’s any wonder that we ever have enough room in our bellies for the entree!

But, nevertheless, bruschetta is a delicious dish which is very easy to make at home. This gorgeous Italian “antipasto” (“before the meal” in Italian) is a great way to whet your appetite before your main course and may often be served alongside olives, cheeses and cured meats etc.

The Classic Bruschetta

A traditional bruschetta has a tomato and basil topping but you can add your own combination of ingredients to make your own unique bruschetta recipes.

  • 1/2 fresh onion
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper
