Usually a Bruschetta is an antipasto from Italy consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. There are many. variations of Bruschetta. Most Bruschetta recipes include toppings of tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, or cheese.
Today, I have combined and modified two recipes to create my own version of a French Onion Bruschetta. I chose to serve my Bruschetta for breakfast, with a large cup of my favorite coffee. It is delicious! I hope you enjoy it!
