- Lauren's Tips
If you're not using Cervasi bruschetta, you can cut a crusty baguette loaf and arrange the slices in one layer on a baking sheet; brush tops with extra virgin olive oil. Broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat until golden on top, about 30 seconds. Turn toasts over and broil until golden, about 30 seconds more. Transfer toasts to a rack to cool. (Note: Lauren says to keep an eye on the bruschetta slices as they could burn.)
For a warm appetizer, place the artichoke-topped bruschetta under the broiler until lightly browned.
Make the topping a day in advance and store in the refrigerator for an easy, make-ahead entertaining recipe.
Store leftover bruschetta toasts in a plastic bag or sealed container.
