Artichoke Bruschetta Recipe

Inspired by artichoke dip recipes, the Artichoke Bruschetta Recipe is another great twist to the classic Italian staple. For this version, we made use of marinated artichokes, combined it with mayonnaise, cheese, and other ingredients to make the delicious topping! Perfect for your fancy dinner for two! We also made a creamy Tomato and Egg Bruschetta Recipe if you want to check it out!

The key to a perfect Artichoke Bruschetta Recipe largely depends on the bread. Rustic Italian loaves or sourdough bread are almost everyone’s favorite. Both types of bread have crumbs that are coarse enough to absorb plenty of olive oil. Keep in mind that the right thickness is neither too thin nor too thick. You also want to pay particular attention to the artichokes. Remember to drain them well before adding the rest of the ingredients. Add artichokes that are too watery and you’ll ruin the consistency of the mixture. If you find red onions too piquant, try soaking them in cold water first to soften its sharp flavor. Then, drain before adding them into the mixture.

Tip: If using red onions is too strong for your taste, try soaking them in a cold bath first to lessen the pungent taste. Then, drain before adding in the mixture.

Just like what we did in this recipe, you are free to use whatever combination of toppings you prefer, making bruschetta a highly customizable antipasto. Serve it before a meal of lasagna, or spaghetti. Or have bruschetta on its own, prepared in a platter, to complement a generous glass of Chianti, Zinfandel, or Sauvignon Blanc.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you keep bruschetta from getting soggy?

To keep bruschetta from getting soggy, add the toppings as close to your serving time as possible. Too much exposure of the bread with the toppings will get it soggy. Also, when serving bruschetta ahead, store the toppings and the bread separately. If using tomatoes, scoop out the seeds and the juice before adding them in the mixture.

What is the difference between bruschetta and a crostini?

The difference between bruschetta and a crostini the the bread used. Bruschetta refers to the whole wide slices of rustic Italian bread. Crostini, on the other hand, are bread slices from a smaller fine-textured bread.

Should artichoke bruschetta be served warm or cold?

Traditional bruschetta is served hot and straight from the grill. From the name itself, bruschetta or “to roast over coals” is best consumed when it is hot as the heat brings out the aromatic taste from the oil. However, with the innovative twists these days, more and more new toppings are incorporated in the side dish. So, serving it either warm or cold does not matter anymore. Hence, you can serve bruschetta either warm or cold, it’s totally up to you!
