A New Twist on Bruschetta

by Michele Pesula Kuegler | August 9th, 2007 | Appetizers, Recipes, Tapas Monday

On a warm, breezy summer afternoon, I met a handful of colleagues at a friend’s house for lunch. The focus of this lunchdate was both social and business.  It was planned to be a relaxing afternoon of gabbing and food served on casual china dinnerware.

Wanting to make entertaining easy for the hostess, several of the guests brought a dish. I offered to bring a bread to accompany the main dish of caesar salad. (As a note to readers, caesar salad is named not for Julius Caesar but for a chef with that first name.) Not certain of the food likes and dislikes of all of my associates, I came with enough bread to offer some plain and some as a bruschetta.

Much to my delight, all of my friends sampled the bruschetta, which received rave reviews. Plus, it was a simple bruschetta that I was able to make within minutes and serve hot from the oven. (Besides being a great food for a business meal, it is also a romantic dinner recipe.)

Good company, simple food. What more could a girl want?
