  • Fresh goat cheese rolled in freshly chopped herbs
  • Fresh mozzarella
  • Prosciutto
  • Capocollo
  • Salame Calabrese
  • Marinara sauce
  • Pesto
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Traditional tomato and basil bruschetta topping
  • Freshly chopped basil
  • Grape tomatoes sliced
  • Garlic stuffed olives
  • Black olives
  • Green pears
  • Honey with comb
  • Ciabatta baguette
  • Sourdough baguette
  • Olive oil for brushing bread slices to grill
  1. The day before the party prepare the traditional bruuschetta topping and pesto or just buy your favorite brand from the store.
  2. 30 minutes before your guests arrive arrange your bruschetta bar. This will allow for the cheese to come to room temperature and be at peak flavor.
  3. If you would like your bread to be grilled do this just before your guests arrive so it will be fresh. Just slice your baguette on a slant so you create more "real estate" for the toppings :) Brush each side with olive oil and place on a hot grill pan. Grill each side for 2-3 minutes or until dark golden marks appear. Use some of the bread slices to fill in the empty spaces in your bruschetta bar and place the rest in a dish to set beside.
