10 Bruschetta Variations: Martha Stewart on the Today Show

Who knew there were 10 Variations of Bruschetta?  Martha’s creativity never ceases to amaze me.  Our dear Martha Stewart was on the Today Show and taught how to make 10 different types of Bruschetta recipes.  Plus, she taught everyone how to properly pronounce the word “Bruschetta” which Martha says is like replacing the “ch” with the letter “k,” for those of you like me who are still learning these types of things!  In fact, I only recently was corrected by a close friend on the correct pronunciation of the word “quinoa”… but that is a whole separate story.  bruschetta variations

For Martha’s Bruschetta, she uses loaves of italian or french bread (and even sesame loaves, which is my personal favorite since it adds some extra flavor).   Slice your bread, and toss them on the grill so you get the nice grill marks on your bread.  A great tip that Martha gave for savory bruschetta is to rub a clove of garlic on the warmly toasted bread to infuse it with a garlic flavor (plus a great time saving tip instead of worrying about mincing lots of garlic up).

One of the savory bruschetta recipes that Martha made used prosciutto and ribbons of melon.  And here comes my favorite Martha Moment from the segment – Martha used a potato peeler to slice thin ribbons of melon!  How genius is that?  I can see this melon ribbon tip coming in handy for lots of different recipes.
