Three types of bruchetta
You can prepare this dish in our Grill 17 and Forno Gas Grill with a frying dish.
I like to serve a small “snack” before dinner. Preparing some bruchetta is very easy and you can use almost anything as a topping. This is a great way of using up whatever you have left in the fridge but obviously, you can also plan it in more detail.
The most important success factor is the ingredients: tasty vegetables and good-quality bread.
Here are three ideas for delicious bruchetta snacks.
Bruchetta with grilled aubergine and ricotta cheese
- 1 aubergine, cut into slices of 1 cm (0.4 inch)
- 1 red chilli, sliced, without seeds
- 1 clove of garlic, cut in half
- 1 handful of flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
- 1 tbsp capers
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Grill the aubergine slices on a warm grill at direct heat. You will want them to have grill marks on both sides without burning them.
Place the aubergine slices in a bowl along with the rest of the ingredients, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Leave the aubergines in the marinade for at last half an hour. Serve them on bruchetta along with some fresh ricotta cheese.
Bruchetta with grilled pepper, buffalo mozzarella and prosciutto
- 1 red pepper
- ½ clove of garlic, crushed, with peel
- 1 tsp red wine vinegar
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- 1 buffalo mozzarella
- 4 basil leaves
Grill your whole pepper on all sides until the skin turns completely black. Place it in a freezer bag and let it cool off.
Remove the skin and grate the pepper into thick slices. Pour the pepper slices into a bowl along with basil, garlic, red wine vinegar and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve your bruchetta with a few strips of pepper, some mozzarella, prosciutto and a basil leaf.
Bruchetta with lumpfish roe, sour cream, ramson and dill
- 100 g (3.5 oz) lumpfish roe
- 200 ml (0.7 cup) sour cream 38%
- A small bundle of ramson, cut into thin strips
- A small bundle of dill
- Half a lemon
- Olive oil
Serve your bruchetta with a nice spoonful of lumpfish roe. Add a tsp of sour cream and sprinkle ramson and a few pieces of dill on top. Ground some pepper onto your bruchetta and finish off with some lemon juice and a drip of olive oil.
