We had guests for dinner the other night and I wanted make a hot appetizer. Looking around the kitchen, I found some “everything” bagels, Romano cheese and a first pressing olive oil. What could I do with those ingredients? Further searching turned up homemade pesto and Tabasco sauce. I became inspired and here is the result:Bruschetta alla Romano (yields 36 pieces)
1½ pre-sliced “everything” bagels
3 Tbsp. good quality olive oil
3 tsp. pesto
¼ cup grated Romano cheese
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
We’ve been thinking about grilled cheese sandwiches a lot lately. Recipes developed here in the Nicer Slicer test kitchen have to pass our trifecta of criteria: does it taste good, does it look appealing and is it easy to make?
