Remember in one of the opening scenes of the movie Julie and Julia when Julie is making bruschetta? I do. Oh boy oh boy I do. I love bruschetta and the best thing about it is that it is healthy. Why, you could eat it everyday you could and never bat a guilty eye.
When I saw that scene in the movie, of all the dishes that were cinematically recreated that one had the most appeal for me. Now, in the movie the character named Julie, fries her baguette. For this technique and because I wanted to try and recreate it as I imagined it to taste, I fried my bread too. BUT… for those of us who are counting calories… you certainly do not have to fry the bread and you can use any type of righteous bread that your conscience will allow. But just make sure that you toast it and that you use the roasted garlic. You can’t mess up bruschetta. This isn’t really a recipe so much as a technique so feel free to “tweak” it as you please.
The only advance prep work that you will need is to roast a garlic bulb.
