Crostini vs. Bruschetta

Definition: Crostini vs. Bruschetta


Crostini: This Italian word means little toasts. The thin slices of bread are toasted, drizzled with olive oil, and served warm. They may be topped with a savory, finely diced mixture such as cheese, vegetables, meat or seafood. The word can also be the equivalent to a crouton used for soup or salads.

Bruschetta: From the Italian word 'bruscare' meaning ‘to roast over coals‘. The thin slices of this traditional garlic bread are made by rubbing slices of toasted bread with garlic cloves, then drizzling the bread with extra-virgin olive oil. The bread is salted and peppered, then heated and served warm.

Yum. Thanks for the definitions. I'd always thought they were pretty much the same thing; I've been corrected.

my fave is the Bruschetta, the garlic the perfect twist for the bread. The crostini need toppings and you don't always have the right one that bursts out ur taste buds! Well that's just my opinion... lol :P
