This was a hit at mother's. Even the picky eaters loved it! I got requests to make it again. It does not make much, however, so I will at least double it for 6 or more people since it was such a hit. Just a nice different appetizer form the usual.
Good bruschetta recipe, but I also added diced roma tomatoes, olive oil, crushed garlic and salt/pepper to taste. The mango/tomato taste is amazing. I've found, having made bruschetta many times, that lots of cheeses are good with it- for this I used fresh grated parmesan and it was great (but gruyere is the best). Thanks!
I took this receipe and modified it a bit. I added tomatoes and a few different cheeses. turned out FANTASTIC!
This is really great, but you have to add some things. I took soft swiss cheese(about three triangles) and added green chilis(half a small can), a couple drops of red hot pepper sauce and a bit of garlic powder. Then I mixed that together and spread it on the brochetta just after crisping the bread, as a base for the other flavors. I did everything else the same, except I added roasted red bell peppers as well. DELISH party tray!
I didn't like this much. I might try denise's suggestion, and use tomato with the mango. Thanks anyway.
Loved this idea! Surprising hit among picky eaters!
I added some red onion and some cherry tomatoes (halved) as well as some garlic to my mix before throwing everything in the oven. FANTASTIC!
no one liked this at all.
I served this recipe at a dinner party for the first time. Everyone was looking at me like they were not going to like this dish. When I served it they were so surprised at the great taste and how great this birchetta appetizer turned out. It was a big hit!
