Bruschetta - My Style
I am sharing yet another starter,bruschetta,an Italian appetizer,which is my all time favorite!!! It is basically a slice of toasted hard bread,topped with olive oil,garlic,salt and pepper.Well,many add different toppings and mozzarella cheese to make it more interesting.It is really simple to make.Here is my version of this starter!!!
1) Any kind of hard bread(I used artisan bread with jalapenos) - 1 small loaf
2) Marinara sauce(store bought) - 3/4th cup
3) Olive oil - 2tblsp
4) Black olives finely chopped -1/2 cup
5) Mozzarella cheese grated - 1 cup
6) Salt to taste
7) Pepper powder to taste
Cut the bread loaf into 3/4th to 1 inch slices.Keep aside.
Take the marinara sauce,drain a bit of liquid from it and keep aside.
Pre-heat the oven to broil.
Take a baking sheet,spray some non stick cooking spray.Then,arrange the bread slices in a row,over the baking sheet.Take a spoon and start spooning each slice with marinara sauce.Next,place the chopped olives over the sauce.Sprinkle olive oil,salt and pepper powder over each slice.Finally,top them with generous amount of cheese.
Place the sheet in the oven and broil till the cheese begins to bubble and turns golden brown in color.
Hot yummy bruschetta is ready!!! Enjoy..
