Bruschetta is a classic Italian appetiser. It is easy to make and absolutely delicious. If you want to prepare bruschetta for a bigger crowd I recommend you toast the bread in the oven, instead of frying it in the pan. The tomato mixture can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the fridge.
(for 2 servings)
4 slices whole grain bread
2 tbsp olive oil
2 hands full of cherry tomatoes
1 buratta cheese
1 hand full of basil leave
2 garlic gloves
salt and pepper
Cut the tomatoes in half and combine them with the basil leaves in a medium bowl. Carefully slice the burrata cheese and add it to the bowl. Season everything with salt, pepper and a little olive oil. Set aside.
Use a pastry brush to spread the olive oil on the slices of bread. Make sure you grease both sides. Peal the garlic glove and cut it in half diagonally. Gently rub the cut side on the bread. Season each side with a pinch of salt.
Heat a frying pan and add the prepared slices of bread when it’s hot. Fry until both sides are crunchy and golden brown.
Transfer the slices onto a plate. Use a spoon to put the tomato mixture onto the bread. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
