3 Quick Italian Bruschetta Toppings

Classic Italian bruschetta with a little tweaking to make them even more enjoyable. I love these as a lunch or brunch and they are super quick to whip up. They are really healthy too :)

Recipe Notes

You can drizzle some balsamic vinegar over them for a little extra flavour if you like!

Grated fresh parmesan is a good choice too.
