Breakfast Bruschetta

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Something that is served from California to Tuscany as an evening savory or appetizer may not seem an obvious choice for breakfast, but I say: Think again. This is quick to make, absurdly easy in fact. The strange thing is that it is as easy to eat, even first thing. I can wolf this stuff down.

Yield: Serves 3 to 6, depending on appetite

INGREDIENTS

For tomato bruschetta:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 thickly sliced short pieces sourdough toast
  • 1 ripe tomato — approximately 4 oz — roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

For avocado bruschetta:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 thickly sliced short pieces sourdough toast
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley

Directions

1 Drizzle most of the olive oil over the toast, top with the chopped tomatoes, and season before drizzling the remaining few drops of oil on top.

2 Halve the avocado, scoop the flesh into a bowl, and mash roughly using a fork along with the lime juice. Season to taste.

3 Spread clumpingly on each waiting piece of toast and sprinkle with the parsley.
