Cream Cheese Tomato Bruschetta | Easy #PartySnack Ideas

One of the must-haves for the kids at an Italian restaurant is Bruschetta. Although the fad has waned away slightly now, they enjoyed having this Cream Cheese version which the elder one put together all by herself after tasting it at a local restaurant. It was yum, delicious and quick. She used a rusk (a.k.a savoury double baked baguette slice if you please) for the base, and that was perfect for this zero cook, yummy treat. 

Note to self : Come to think of it, She made a Spinach and Cheese Bruschetta earlier, so this recipe of Bruschetta toppings must be really her specialty 🙂


The toppings for this quick bruschetta are endless : Olives, Shredded basil, pesto, onions, Avocados, mozzarella, cooked n mashed spicy chickpeas, dehydrated Rajma gravy (red beans), bell peppers or whatever pretty much you fancy – the ideas are aplenty 🙂


At the next party of potluck if you want to add a new appetiser, you know where to look 🙂
