An impressive appetizer that's so easy. the-girl-who-ate-everything.comEvery time I say the word bruschetta I can’t help but think about the time I was invited to the Betty Crocker kitchens to hang out and make a video with them back in 2010. It was my first time doing a video, first time doing anything. I honestly haven’t watched the video since then. I take that back. I watched it about 2 minutes ago. It’s cringe worthy. I do this squinty thing with my eyes. You can watch it here if you want to but save me the angst and just take my word for it.

In the video I was supposed to say the word bruschetta and we spent probably 15 minutes with the crew debating whether is was pronounced broo-SKET-tuh or broo-SHEH-tuh.  Okay, I wasn’t actually debating. I was just standing there fighting the urge to run out of the room. I was scared out of my shorts and was watching the producer and another guy go back and forth like a tennis match giving their opinion on how it should be pronounced.

In the end, the producer said to say whatever I felt more comfortable with. I chose broo-SKET-tuh – which I’m 99% sure is the right pronunciation, and vowed that my video days were over.

A flavor party into your mouth. Salty feta, fresh basil, vibrant tomatoes, and garlic on a toasted baguette. We ended up drizzling ours with a reduced balsamic glaze – after I took a picture. It added just the right zing!

Recipe Notes
You can use regular balsamic but it doesn't look very pretty for serving.
