When you bake bread often, you’ll find that one of the main snacks, appetizers, or small meals that pop up in your kitchen, is centered on Bruschetta:
Merriam-Webster Definition of bruschetta
: thick slices of bread grilled, rubbed with garlic, drizzled with olive oil, often topped with tomatoes and herbs, and usually served as an appetizer
Other than breakfast, lunch, dinner, and in between meals, I don’t eat it that often. Here are some examples over the past few weeks, using either my Sourdough Country Loaf or the Seeded Rye Levain.
The formula is so simple and delicious:
pane, vino, formaggi = bread, wine, cheese
plus whatever other toppings you wish to use:
e.g. arugula, chard, spinach, hummus, bean purée, tomatoes, grilled onions, zucchini, peppers, mushrooms….almost limitless possibilities.
