Smoked Applewood Cheesy Bruschetta

Makes 24 Bruschettas.

Ingredients:

  • 24 slices of ciabatta bread, appx. 1cm thick
  • 2 large garlic cloves, peeled
  • olive oil
  • 15 sundried tomatoes, drained and finely chopped
  • 6oz. of Ilchester® Applewood Smoked Cheddar cheese, cut into 24 slices
  • 4 slices of prosciutto, each roughly torn into 3 pieces
  • 4 slices of smoked turkey bread, cut into 3 pieces
  • Toasted pine nuts, to garnish
  • Basil leaves, to garnish

Instructions:

Place the ciabatta slices under a preheated hot grill and toast each side until golden.

Rub one side of each slice with the garlic, then drizzle with a little olive oil.

Assemble the bruschettas first by adding some chopped sundried tomatoes to the toasted ciabatta, followed by a piece of prosciutto or turkey and finally a slice of Ilchester® Applewood Smoked Cheddar cheese. Place them on backing trays.

When you are ready to serve, place the trays under a hot broiler for 3 -4 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Garnish with pine nuts and basil leaves.
