This strawberry bruschetta is perfect for a girl's brunch or a family gathering. It's so easy to make, and requires 5 simple ingredients!
- 4 slices sliced bread, note 1
- 4 strawberries, whole
- 3 basil leaves, roughly chopped
- 4 tsp ricotta, note 2
- 1 tsp balsamic glaze, note 3
Place bread in toaster and toast until golden brown.
Spread over a thick layer of ricotta onto toast.
Top with sliced strawberries, and basil.
Drizzle over balsamic glaze.
Note 1 - we used Pugliese bread, but a baguette or good quality sourdough would also work.
Note 2 - I also think goat cheese would work really well with this recipe, although I haven't tried it. Goats cheese was my original thought for this recipe.
Note 3 - balsamic glaze can be found in most supermarkets in the vinegar section. It is balsamic vinegar mixed with sugar to make a slightly sweet thick glaze. It is absolutely delicious!
