Sweet summer peaches are served on a toasted French baguette and a pillow of mozzarella cheese then glazed with a balsamic reduction in my Peach Bruschetta recipe.
With all the fresh produce available, Summer is the best time to entertain. And, Peach Bruschetta is a great way to serve the best part of summer with your friends. Furthermore, Peach Bruschetta is simple to make with just six ingredients and it doesn’t have to be served hot. After all, entertaining should be fun for the cook too!
Peach Bruschetta Tips
- Slice your baguette either in round or diagonal slices. Diagonal slices will have more surface area. They need to be about 1/2 inch thick.
- You can toast the bread in the oven or grill it. However, I prefer it browned in a skillet on the stove.
- I get pre-sliced mozzarella. It’s not easy to cut into even slices and I find this easier.
- Let’s face it Balsamic Reduction makes everything better and Peach Bruschetta is no exception. Personally, I could dunk my bruschetta into it dip-style. A drizzle is probably good for most. If you don’t like Balsamic Reduction (gasp!), you make like honey or agave nectar drizzled over.
- And don’t forget the sprinkle of salt!
