Fresh Fruit Bruschetta



Fresh Fruit Bruschetta makes for a beautiful breakfast or brunch dish at the weekend, especially when it is drizzled with a lush Orange-Honey Cream!


One of the things I love most about the summer months is the availability of beautiful fresh and local fruit! One of the best ways to showcase and take advantage of it is to serve it every chance you can and this beautiful bruschetta is not only a great way to do that, but its quick, easy and delicious as well!


Perfect for when you are entertaining, (not that many of us are doing that at the moment) or even for when it is just you and the family!


Like any bruschetta you begin with slices of baguette, which get brushed with melted butter, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and then toasted in a hot oven until they are beautifully crisp and golden around the edges.


Once cooled you top them with your favourite fruits.  Today I have used kiwi, mango and strawberries from the garden.  If you are not fond of any of those, substitute them with fruits you do like!


Any mix of ripe berries would work beautifully! Can you imagine how tasty strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries would be?



Just so long as your fruit is bite sized and the favours go together I think the sky is your limit!


These tasty Fresh Fruit Bruschetta are topped with a drizzle of Orange-Honey Cream!


If I was using blueberries I would be tempted to use lime instead of orange! Mint also goes well with most berries!


I always keep bake at home French baguettes in my freezer, ready to whip out and bake up for delicious options such as these tasty bruschetta!


If you think the Honey-Orange Cream is a bit messy for the top, keep it on the thick side and spoon it onto each brushetta before topping with the fruit.


On top or beneath, this lush cream is the perfect pairing with everything here.


It would be really fun to serve these for a special brunch with some Breakfast Taquitos and Virgin Margheritas (or real ones if you are a drinker!) Maybe throw in something lush for dessert. (Mmmm . . .  cheesecake bites would be wonderful!)


Not too big, not too small  . . .


These are a perfect two-bite indulgence, each bite bringing you a bit of crisp, creamy, tart, sugary and fruity deliciousness!

What combinations of fruit would you use for these if you could?  I think strawberry/blackberry/kiwi would be nice, as would raspberry and peachs or nectarines . . . . banana, pineapple, kiwi and coconut!  You really can let your taste imagination go wild here!
