Bruschetta is basically slices of bread that have been toasted and rubbed with raw garlic then very lightly drizzled with olive oil. You could stop right there and have a real good and basic garlic bread. Here is a link to our amped up version of garlic bread. Then comes the many toppings. The most common being chopped tomatoes. There was a real good Italian restaurant in manhatten on Mulberry St. in Little Italy that did it like this and it’s still our favorite. Although we have been guilty of trying a few variations over the years.
