Brushetta with Tomato and Basil

Brushetta with Tomato and Basil

Bruschetta refers to the bread. Just the bread. Whatever goes on top is just extra.
The word bruschetta is Italian, and it s derived from the verb bruscare. That means to char or toast. Bruschetta is a word that the Italians invented to describe stale sliced bread which had been toasted and doused in olive oil, garlic, and salt. The tomato topping commonly associated with bruschetta isn’t a part of its traditional meaning, but in modern times it has. It includes diced tomatoes, garlic, onion, basil, and sometimes mozzarella cheese.
