Bruschetta is an italian grilled slice of bread that is rubbed with garlic to add flavour and is also topped with various ingredients like a garlic sauce or chopped tomatoes and other vegetables. We all love to have garlic bread, and a bruschetta is a simple garlic bread taken up a notch with the amazing set of toppings it has on it.

    How to make Bruschetta?

    1. Dice the tomatoes (into fairly small pieces) then place into a medium sized bowl along with the onion and season with salt and pepper
    2. Thickly slice one clove of garlic into 4 or 5 pieces and add to the bowl then drizzle over 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
    3. Add most of the basil leaves, reserving a few for garnish. Stir well and set aside to marinate but do not refrigerate
    4. Preheat the grill to medium hot, or heat your Circulon Grill pan to fairly hot
    5. Slice the ciabatta diagonally and arrange the pieces on your Circulon square baking tray or place onto your Grill pan (you’ll need to cook in two batches if using the pan).
    6. Toast the bread on both sides then remove and place on a serving board or plate. Drizzle sparingly with the remaining olive oil
    7. Cut the remaining garlic clove in half and rub all over the toasted bread then discard. Remove the sliced garlic from the marinated tomatoes and discard.
    8. Spoon the tomato mixture onto the toasted bread then scatter over the remaining basil and an extra pinch of salt and pepper if desired.


    Expert Tips

    1. You need to make sure that the tomatoes are perfectly ripe and juicy as we aren't cooking them.
    2. Toast the bread evenly so that it doesn't get soggy.
    3. Do not use vegetable oil instead of extra virgin as it would not have the same taste.
