Bruschetta Seasoning (pronounced "Broo-sket-ta"), is also called bruschetta spice mix, bruschetta spices, or dried bruschetta mix.

What is Bruschetta

Bruschetta is typically served as a snack or as the first course in a more former Italian meal. The most popular bruschetta consists of grilled slices of bread rubbed with raw garlic and topped with olive oil, chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, and salt. Add Bruschetta Seasoning to a high quality olive oil and let it marry for 10-15 minutes before using.

History of Bruschetta

Derived from the Italian word "bruscare" which means "to burn" or "heat in a fire". Marcella Hazan (1924-2013), the legendary cookbook author who changed how Americans cook Italian food, believed that bruschetta's origins could be traced back certainly to the ancient Romans (27 BC - 1453 AD) and probably before that to the Etruscans (768 BC - 264 BC) who lived in what is modern day Tuscany, western Umbria and northern Lazio.

Food historians tell of the Romans testing the quality of freshly pressed olive oil by smearing it on a piece of fire-toasted bread for tasting. This is now a common practice in all the major olive-oil producing regions of Italy. They also speculate that the oil-soaked bread was first rubbed with a clove of garlic as a way to enhance the flavors of the oil. Others are of the opinion that bruschetta came from people trying to revitalize stale bread by soaking it with olive oil.

What does Bruschetta Seasoning Taste Like

Tomato flavor with onion, garlic and celery notes and a slightly smoky undertone with just a very mild hint of heat.

What is the difference Between Bruschetta, Crostini and Panini

To many Americans, there is some confusion when it comes to understanding the differences between bruschetta, crostini and panini. The best way to conceptualize these are to think of paninis as Italian-style sandwiches, bruschetta as grilled bread with toppings (like pastoral open face Italian sandwiches) and crostinis as more refined, smaller versions of bruschetta.

A simple bruschetta is made from day old crusty Italian bread (this allows the breads natural flavors to emerge), cooked on a cast iron stove-top grill pan or toasted over a wood fire, then rubbed with garlic and blessed with olive oil. Crostini are brushed with olive oil before being cooked in the oven, or sauteed in olive oil.

Another difference between bruschetta and crostini is the bread used. Bruschetta generally use whole, wide slices approximately .5" to .75" thick of a rustic Italian or sourdough type bread. Crostini are sliced thinner and toasted from a smaller, round, finer-textured bread, more like a white bread baguette. For paninis use ciabatta, focaccia or sourdough bread.

When visiting Italy you might find yourself offered an antipasto (the traditional first course of a formal Italian meal) of four or five different crostini, no more than a couple of mouthfuls each. The small crostini are topped with meticulously prepared flavored toppings, such as a rich fig spread topped with goat cheese, creamy ricotta and sweet squash, or stewed grapes, prosciutto and ricotta salata or when the weather starts to turn cooler with finely chopped wild mushrooms seasoned with black pepper.

Bruschetta lends itself to a myriad of fresh and marinated toppings too, you're likely to find it generously topped with either chopped, ripe tomatoes and basil, a purée of fresh fava beans and garlic, Greek salad, sun dried tomato spreads, flaky roasted white fish, or whatever vegetables are in season at the time.

Bruschetta can also be the base for a wide selection of savory toppings and served as an antipasto, first course, main course or light afternoon snack.

How do You use Bruschetta Seasoning

This Bruschetta Seasoning can be used in multiple ways. For bruschetta, steep 1-2 tablespoons of bruschetta seasoning in ¼ cup of olive oil for 10-15 minutes and then mix with fresh vegetables or herbs and top your bread. Toss over homemade pizza and bake. Mix with spaghetti. Roll a log of goat cheese in this blend and drizzle with olive oil and a balsamic reduction for a beautiful appetizer or mix with tapenade for dip. Fold into cream cheese for a savory spread for bagels and wraps. Add to rice.
