How To Make Bruschetta

The pairing of crispy bread and freshly chopped tomatoes make for a perfect complement to any Italian meal – well, any meal really. Toasted bread is rubbed with olive oil, salt and pepper and topped with an array of ingredients. Bruschetta is most typically seen with fresh tomato, basil, garlic, onion, and mozzarella, but the possibilities don’t end there. It can also be topped with cured meats, beans or even other vegetables like zucchini. To make this appetizer, either grill or toast a sliced baguette in the oven. While the bread is cooking, prepare the topping. If you like to have an extra layer of cheese, and a less messy bruschetta, you can stick the topped bread back in the oven to allow the cheese to melt, binding the topping together. In this video, Chef Fernando provides an online cooking lesson for making the perfect appetizer. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
