This bruschetta is made with mango, basil, and Romano cheese, which yields an interesting combination of sweet, sour, and peppery flavors.
Original recipe makes 6 servings
1 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 mango – peeled, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon fresh basil, minced
1 cup grated Romano cheese
- Preheat the broiler.
- Arrange French bread slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Broil in the preheated oven 1 to 2 minutes per side, until lightly toasted. Remove from heat.
- In a medium bowl, mix mango and fresh basil.
- Top each bread slice with equal amounts of the mango and basil mixture. Sprinkle with Romano cheese, adjusting the amount to taste.
- Return topped bread to broiler. Broil 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned. Serve hot.
