Brochetta (Not Bruschetta)

No, not a typo. Don't know where the name came from. Recipe from Food Network. The addition of cream cheese and Romano cheese puts a spin on traditional Bruschetta. Think garlic cheese toast plus tomatoes and basil. Note: The original recipe posted on Food Network did not state when to add the roasted garlic puree. You could mix the garlic puree in with the cream cheese or stir the garlic in with the tomatoes.

  • Slice bread, 1/2-inch thick, on the bias. Toast the bread slightly and set aside.
