Just to give you an idea of what you can do with a bruchetta

Artisian Style Breads are best for this recipe.Makes some awesom panini's! French rolls,Ciabatta,Foccia Breads.Other breads such as Baguettes,sourdough bread,english muffins can be used as well.
The perfect toast should be a light golden look,Semi crunchy crust,with a nice soft center.It should never be too hard and crunchy that you can't bite into it.

Pre heat your panini grill

Select your favorite bread,slice them 1/2 inch thick

Place the slices on the panini grill.1 to 2 minutes,until they are crisp,and lightly browned.Turn them over and repeat.
Remove them to a cutting board. add your favorite combinations of toppings.

Herbed oil (Base)

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon chili peppers
1 teaspoon of basil
1/2 teaspoon of oregano
dash of sea salt
fresh ground pepper

whisk in a small bowl set aside covered for later use.

Take a few toasted bruchettas,lightly brush on the herbed oil. Or rub a halved garlic clove.Top as you want.Bruchetta's can be placed back on the panini grill to warm up,or melt the cheese toppings.

I don't eat much,but when I do,I like flavor.

You never get the same thing twice with those.

Classy lil things aren't they?

That's been confirmed here.Looks like a po' mans dinner here tonight.

Funny how the men in my house can't give a definite decision on what they want for dinner when asked, until I threaten to make meatloaf again! :lol:


I did see some frozen in a box,they were asking $6.00 for 12. Nooooo not frozen!!.. Now that's just not right.

But paninis,and bruchetta's are extremely popular now.

I think we can make more, at half the cost and know where our dinner came from,and be safe.
