Bruschetta Using Whole Wheat Rusk

Bruschetta Using Whole Wheat Rusk

Bruschetta is a starter dish from Italy where the bread is grilled, rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. Lot of variations are done by topping with tomato, cheese, different vegetables, meat etc. Usually Italian Ciabatta bread or French loaf is used for the recipe which is mostly not available in whole wheat.  So, I came into the idea of using Whole Wheat Rusk (a hard, twice baked bread) which is crispy and can be stored for months in an air tight container. You can find them in any Indian Stores. Trust me the dish tastes so great and you will make it often once you try it. It will be an easy to make tasty and Vibrant party appetizer too. Enjoy with family and friends. Good Health!
