Grilled pepper bruschetta

Posted on June 25, 2009. Filed under: sizzler | Tags: , , |

Bruschettas are of Italian origin and are traditionally prepared by grilling a toast over a wood fire in order to infuse the smoky taste. I have however, used a charcoal barbeque for making these you can also use the electric one if you like or even an oven will do just as well.

Cooking Time : 10 mins.
Preparation Time : 10 mins.

Makes 6.

6 slices French bread (approx. ¾” thick)
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tablespoon butter
For the topping
2 tablespoons onions, chopped
¼ cup red or yellow peppers, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon oregano
3 tablespoons mozzarella or cooking cheese, grated
1 teaspoon butter
salt to taste
For the topping
1. Heat the olive oil in a pan, add the onions and peppers and sauté for a few minutes till they are lightly browned.
2. Add the oregano and salt and mix well.
3. Cool, add the cheese and mix again.
How to proceed
1. Cream the butter and garlic together and keep aside.
2. Apply some garlic butter onto each bread slice and grill over a charcoal or electric barbeque for 2 to 3 minutes on both sides.
3. Spoon the topping mixture on to each slice and grill over a slow charcoal or electric barbeque for another 2 to 3 minutes until the cheese has melted.
4. Serve hot.
