What is Bruschetta
Let’s talk about what Bruschetta actually is. It is an Italian dish that basically consists of grilled bread that’s rubbed in garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. There have been many variations of toppings added to a bruschetta recipe that includes, tomatoes, cheese, nuts, beans, balsamic reduction and so on. A Bruschetta Chicken means swapping the bread with the chicken.
Is Bruschetta the bread or the topping
Whenever I used to hear the word bruschetta, the first thing that came to mind was the tomato mixture that goes on top of the bread. But, bruschetta is actually the bread that’s grilled and not the topping.
