Most people probably know bruschettas as little tomato-based sandwiches. Not this one.

In fact, bruschetta is nothing more than grilled bread, topped with garlic and olive oil. It is served as an appetizer or a small snack and is often also part of antipasti. It comes from Italian cuisine.

As I mentioned, the most common ones are served with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. However, there is a whole bunch of other toppings that go well with baked bread.

You can use grilled vegetables (blended or whole), cheese, meat (Parma ham, prosciutto ham) as bruschetta toppings. There are several options to choose from.

I decided to stay in the atmosphere of Italy and prepared bruschetta with Italian ricotta cheese, garlic and mushrooms. It turned out to be a total hit and quickly disappeared from the plate.
