Astoundingly good for minimal effort, this makes an indulgent weekend breakfast or anyday dessert. A judicious smear of mascarpone (half the fat of butter) is part of the luxury, but even lighter low-fat cream cheese will work as well. The real secret is warming the berries just enough to make the flavor bloom and transform their juices into a rosy syrup.

Cherry Tomato & Strawberry Bruschetta

These topped toasts get a sweet-salty punch from the addition of strawberries and ricotta salata—a firm, saltier version of ricotta cheese. Look for it with other specialty cheeses at the supermarket, or substitute Parmigiano-Reggiano or pecorino.

Inspiration and Ideas

Roasted Tomato and Ricotta Bruschetta
The secret ingredients that bring out the natural sweetness in this appetizer are fresh strawberries and roasted tomatoes. Use a whole grain baguette for this sweet and savory appetizer.
Pork Spedini with Mushrooms & Bruschetta
Throughout Italy you will find kebabs called spedini: skewers of various meats often combined with bread cubes. In this recipe, you cook the meat separately and pile it on thick slices of toast brushed with a garlic-mushroom and olive oil mixture (that's the bruschetta). Brine the lean cubes of pork loin first for juicy pork with great flavor.

Bruschetta with Tomatoes & Capers

Bruschetta, or grilled bread, is a crisper, more flavorful alternative to American garlic bread. Here it's topped with a combination of tomatoes and capers. Munch on this while you prepare the rest of the dinner.
