Toast or bruschetta?

I've never seen the point of bruschetta. Although I love a nice baguette or ciabatta, for me, once toasted, the balance is all wrong between crusty and soft. I was even told recently that it should be toasted two days in advance before the topping is added :o Not ideal for a quick lunch, then :roll:

I have a sneaky feeling that, if bruschetta had been the English norm and some TV chef had come back from foreign parts trumpeting the wonder of the toasted square(ish) loaf, bruschetta would have long ago disappeared from menus.

What do you think?

    I reckon that both have a role to play, for me it depends upon the time of day. Toast at breakfast and maybe lunch, bruschetta for mid-afternoon or early evening. DD

    Bruschetta on hard crackers like Ryvita, etc for lunch.

    Buttered toast with peach marmalade or honey and cinnamon, please.

    Oh dear, 57% holding sway for 100% of the population, the rest will now be given a vote whether they want to leave and take their bread, garlic, tomatoes with them (it will run out soon!). This will be followed by the worth of all bread falling and us eating cake.

    Sound familiar?

    I'm with DD on this. Hot buttered toast for breakfast and bruschetta any other time. My boss's brother-in-law is an Italian chef. His bruschetta is to die for.

    I voted both because it depends when and in what circumstances.

    This week I have been eating 5 seed wholemeal toast with butter and philede*phia...yum :D

    Being a piggy - BOTH is all a could vote.
