What we Chow Wednesday - Brus'ketta or Bruschetta?

It is always fun to learn how people around the world pronounce the same items in different ways. There has been a lot of debate around the very popular appetizer- Bruschetta. I would love to hear what our fans think!

There could be hundreds of different combinations used to create a delicious bruschetta recipe. With that said, here is one of my favorite recipes, the combination of whole cumin with the melted Sajji BBQ Gouda on top of the tomatoes is exquisite....enjoy!!

Bruschetta-with Olive Oil and Whole Cumin

1 fresh Italian bread, sliced
4 tablespoons Olive oil
4 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon whole cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
½ cup green onions, chopped
2 cups White Jasmine Sajji BBQ Gouda, grated

Heat the oven to 425 degrees. Place bread slices on a baking sheet and evenly drizzle olive oil. Place the bread in the oven for 1-2 minutes until the edges turn golden brown, remove from the oven. In a bowl, add tomatoes, cilantro, green onions, whole cumin and salt. Mix well. Place the tomato mixture on each bread slice and top with White Jasmine Sajji BBQ Gouda. Place the bread back in the oven for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese melts. Serve hot.
