Our Favorite Ways to Serve Bruschetta

By the way, that’s pronounced “broo-sketta,” not “broo-shetta.”

Originally, bruschetta was simply a slice of crusty bread that’s toasted, rubbed with garlic cloves, drizzled with olive oil, and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Somewhere along the way, fresh chopped tomatoes and basil were added for a light appetizer or meal. Now, bruschetta and crostini are practically interchangeable in America. Bruschetta recipes can be as elaborate as stacking multiple ingredients atop that crusty bread or as easy as placing a few slices of tomato and some olive oil on it. These homemade bruschetta recipes can satisfy both the fancy and the laid-back side of things, but they’re all quick and easy to make. Homemade bruschetta is a perfect portable appetizer for dinner parties, and any novice cook can make bruschetta. These are the best bruschetta recipes for any taste, whether simple, complex, or even sweet.
