His & Her Bruschetta

Have you ever been to Postino's? Well, it's delicious. I highly recommend it. Unless you know where I live- then you can just come over here and eat mock-Postino's bruschetta.
I made two types of bruschetta for dinner; His & Her's.



His: Pesto & Fresh Mozzarella with Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh basil, chopped
  • dash of garlic powder
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil
  • fresh mozzarella, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
  • basil pesto
  • French or Italian bread, cut into 3/4" thick slices.
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. In a small bowl, combine the diced tomato, basil, and garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Lightly drizzle with olive oil. Set aside.
  3. Brush each side of the bread with olive oil- place on a baking sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  4. Spread pesto on each slice, top with mozzarella- place back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese begins to melt. 
  5. Remove from the oven, top with the tomato mixture, serve immediately.
Her's: Brie & Fig with Apples
  • Good Quality Brie Chese
  • Fig Spread
  • Granny Smith Apple, cored and cut into thin slices
  • Honey
  • French or Italian bread, cut into 3/4" thick slices
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Brush each side of the bread with olive oil- place on a baking sheet and bake for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  3. Spread a thick layer of Brie onto the slices, then top with a layer of fig spread. Top with apple slices. Drizzle a little honey over the apples. Serve immediately.
