Bruschetta is Italian sandwiches, but always baked or grilled over charcoal, toasted in a pan without oil or in the oven. The Italians call this appetizer “antipasto” and serve it before the main meal to raise the appetite. Of course, ideally ciabatta should act as a bread basis, but you can take a baguette.
Toppings for bruschetta can be anything: vegetables, ham, cheese and herbs.
