I SAY TOE-MAY-TOE...YOU SAY TAH-MA TOE

Stroll over to Designs By Gollum's blog to visit the other Foodie participants.



The same (pronunciation) goes for an Italian food which consists of grilled bread with vegetables, herbs, cheese, meats,etc.
Bruschetta, (pronounced bɾu'sketta - In Italian, the letters "ch" represent the sound "k") Whichever you prefer Brushetta or Brusketta in the end it is a savory or sweet dish that has endless possibilities!


AT TIMES SWEET




TODAY SAVORY




Traditional Brusketta




I spread a mayonnaise garlic, (eggless) Aioli on the Ciabatta bread. It's not necessary but adds a creamy flavored base.
Add the toppings: (fresh) tomatoes tossed in olive oil, basil, garlic, Italian cheese.
Broil until crispy.




Along with the traditional version, I made a Brusketta with caramelized (sweet) onions,
Boursin and smoked Gouda cheeses.
I generally add Prosciutto or Pancetta to the Brusketta, making it a heartier meal. Instead we had.....




Roasted Red Pepper & Tomatoe Soup with Italian cheese (stuffed) link sausage.
Each dish tasted as good as it sounds

Let me know if there's any questions?

All this bruschetta (and soup) looks fabulous. I have never tried a dessert type, or most of the savory kind shown. But, I sure do enjoy the traditional recipe; makes me want to run outside and plant some basil and tomatoes.

Thanks for the new recipe ideas and the great photos.

Everything looks so good however you pronounce it! I had to giggle while I was reading the pronunciations. When I was in Birmingham, AL, last week, I was looking for a place called Iverness. I asked the lady, "Do you know where Iverness is (I pronounced it Iver--as in ivy and ness as in the Loch Ness). Well she had never heard of such a place. UNTIL I showed it to her in writing and she said "OH" in her cute little southern drawl, "Iverness" (as in "if-er-niss"). OMG!!! Don't make me come over that counter and smack your little southern behind! Geesh. There isn't THAT much difference to not be able to understand!!! I'm not from, say, France! Geeeeee. lol. Anyway, sorry for the tangent. I'll have to post about that! tehe.
