When the ingredients matter: Crostini e Bruschette

When the ingredients matter: Crostini e Bruschette | The Authentic Food & Wine Experience | 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.

 

Mozzarella and Tomato Bruschette Recipe

 

Ingredients

1.7 cm slices of Italian bread plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped garlic, minced a few tbsp of sweet onion, diced fresh mozzarella, cut in cubes fresh basil leaves, hand torn Italian seasoning olive oil Balsamic vinegar dried oregano salt & pepper
