When the ingredients matter: Crostini e Bruschette

When the ingredients matter: Crostini e Bruschette | Le Marche and Food | Scoop.it

The word crostini means little toasts, whereas bruschetta has as its origin bruscare, to char or roast.  I’ve always thought the difference to be in the bread used. When I make crostini, I use a baguette, thinly sliced on the diagonal. For bruschette, I use a thicker slice taken from a loaf of Italian bread. I toast both before piling on the fixin’s and sometimes pop them back into the oven afterward. It really does depend on what’s being used to top each off. And speaking of the fixin’s, you can use pretty much anything you like. Just stick with fresh ingredients and you won’t go wrong.

Bread slices come in all sizes so the amounts of the ingredients I am putting should be modified according to the size of the bread that you have. When making the bruschette, be free to put the amount you want and what ingredient you want on the bread. The important thing is that the ingredients blend well. All the ingredients of the recipes are for one (1) bruschetta only.
