Fruit Bruschetta

Imagine the buttery crunch of crisp bread topped with
juicy ripe berries and a light glaze as you bite into this
fabulous Fresh Fruit Bruschetta.

We just had this as an appetizer on the houseboat 
on our maiden voyage.  My friend Rachel made these
and she got the recipe from the cookbook

I don't have this cookbook yet, but I think I am going
to have to get it.  They also have a blog by the same name.

You start by slicing a baguette into about 1/2 inch
slices and brushing them with melted butter.
 Then the bread is baked until crispy.

The bread is topped with a mixture of fresh fruit.  Rachel
chose mango, strawberries and raspberries.

Finally the light glaze is spooned on.  This was such a 
great summer appetizer and we all want to have it again and again.

Fresh Fruit Bruschetta
Orange-Honey Cream
(From Our Best Bites Cookbook - slightly tweaked)

1 baguette sliced into 1/2 inch slices
4 T. melted butter
2 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 C. honey Greek yogurt
3 T. honey
1 tsp. orange zest
1 C. diced strawberries
1 C. diced mango
1 C. fresh raspberries

Brush the bread slices with the melted butter and broil until
golden.  Watch closely so you don't burn it.  While bread is
cooling, gently toss the berries and mango.  Set aside. 

In a small bowl mix the sugar, cinnamon, yogurt, honey
 and orange zest.
(The original recipe says to mix the sugar and cinnamon
and sprinkle it on the bread before toasting.  Rachel just
mixed it in the topping accidentally and it was great too,
so I am giving you the recipe
that way.  I am sure the original is wonderful too.)

Place bread slices butter side up on a serving platter.  Place
about 1 T. mixed fruit on each piece of bruschetta.  Spoon 
a little sauce on each bruschetta.  Serve immediately.

This creative dish would be a hit anytime and
you could adjust your fruits according to the



Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
