Bruschetta is an Italian appetizer or snack, which dates to the 15th century. Bread is roasted or grilled (this is a good way of salvaging slightly stale bread), rubbed with garlic, oil, salt and pepper, and then topped with various ingredients such as roasted peppers, tomatoes, basil, cheese, cured meat, beans or other vegetables. The most popular topping found outside Italy is tomatoes, onions, garlic and basil.
