We have been looking for a quick and simple party appetizer. So Dana and I, immediately thought of bruschetta and/or crostini. What is the difference? Well it all has to do with the bread. Bruschetta comes from the Italian word Bruscare which means to “roast over coals”. Basically it is toasted slices of wide Italian bread. Not what we think of in America, but lets go with it. Crostini is the toasting of smaller bread slices, typically a baguette. This is what we think of as Bruschetta in America. Oops, I have been wrong all of my life. Well that stops here. Check out this Mushroom Crostini.
