Bruschetta Heaven

If you are reading this blog and haven’t watched Julie and Julia, shame on you. I grew up watching Julia Child on TV with my parents and my family absolutely loves the cookbook Julia and Jacques Pepin wrote.

One of the scenes in Julie and Julia involves Julia Powell (played by Amy Adams) making bruschetta at home after another horrible day at work. You see her frying bread slices in a pan and these beautifully-browned pieces of bread are then topped with a mouthwatering mixture of tomatoes and basil.

Ever since I saw this scene, I’ve been thinking about the recipe and decided to finally see if I could find a recipe to follow to make my own version. I ran a quick search on Google and found The Hungry Novelist’s blog with a recipe for “Bruschetta alla Julie and Julia.” You can find the recipe here.

I sliced up a multigrain loaf from the local grocery store, but pretty much followed the recipe. I did place the bread on some paper towels to soak up some of the excess oil and, depending on your love of salt, you might want to use 1/2 teaspoon of salt instead of the full teaspoon. You can always add more salt to taste. Here’s a picture of the bruschetta I made…bon app├ętit!
