This is a delicious variation of the popular tomato based appetizer. The strawberries are warm and sweet and the sugar is caramelized and crunchy! Your guests will love it!

I thought this was OK... to me it tasted a lot like buttered toast with whole fruit on top rather than jam. I mixed up some cream cheese sugar and cinnamon and spread it on the bread and toasted it at the same time too. I put the strawberries and sugar on these slices too. I liked those slices better but overall the recipe's a fun sweet snack. Read More

I make a strawberry bruschetta except I toast a nutty hearty bread and spread with a mascarpone cheese flavored with honey and they put strawberries on top with a sprig of mint. They are always a hit and delicious and pretty! Bernadette from Hamilton NJ Read More

Toasted the bread and then put the strawberries on top. Also I used brown sugar instead of white and a bit of fresh ground black pepper. I also added a splash of balsamic vinegar to the mix which helps to pull out the natural sweetness from the strawberries. Read More

I do a modified version of this recipe which is a big hit. Use zucchini bread instead of baguette (biscotti is also a good substitute) and add other fruits to the strawberries. I use white peaches and blackberries. Great for brunch. Read More

I absolutely love this recipe. So simply so fresh so easy. Since my broiler isn't working properly I popped the baguettes into the toaster & used a hand torch to caramelize the sugar. I had this delicious things for 3 days straight for breakfast or lunch and sometimes for both. Read More

Toasted a butered cinnamon-raisin bread spred a layer of sweetened cream cheese (added Chambord for a nice raspberry undertone) and topped with sliced strawberries. Since the berries were in season they didn't need sugar. This was delicious with the extra layer of cream cheese...simply delicious! Read More
