During a party that you’re hosting, how often do you find yourself in the kitchen, cutting, dicing or sautéing? Was that another knock at the door? Yep! And now you find yourself asking your guests if they wouldn’t mind answering it! While they are mingling amongst themselves, you’re probably getting the appetizers out, and missing all the good conversation and juicy stories, right? Well, I’ve got a Gr8 way for all of your appetizers to be out and ready while you keep your status of being the “hostess with the most-ess”! How fun does a Bruschetta Bar sound? Appetizers that they create and at the same time, it’s a conversation piece…a tasty one! The prepping takes the most time, but the best part is, it’s all done ahead of time, allowing you to enjoy all of the people you’ve gathered together.
Celebrating our daughter’s college graduation party of course we wanted to enjoy the day! Yay! This was our opportunity to test the Bruschetta Bar idea! Guess what?! It was such a hit, and so much fun that it will be front and center at our next celebration! We hope it will be at yours, too! The guests will have a Gr8 time and YOU will have a Gr8 time with them…and that’s the whole idea, right?!
(Don’t’ the afraid of this list! These are just suggestions!)
Gather all of your little dishes and let the fun begin! Place the toasted bread in a larger platter and all of your tastes and flavors each in its own little dish.
I had a few of the combinations already assembled and plated, just to get them started and to get the idea.
The bread can be toasted the day before and kept in a tightly sealed plastic bag or container.
