Fruit Bruschetta

29 Aug

I love bruschetta and have shared my recipe on an earlier blog.  This is a fun take on the original version.  It is a light and refreshing treat and would be great served as an appetizer for a shower or party. 

i first found this recipe on Best Bites.  This is a great blog authored by two LDS mothers.  They are quest speakers at  Time out for Women, that the girls and I are going to.  I am so excited to hear them.

 

 

Fresh Fruit Bruschetta with Orange-Honey Cream

1 baguette or similar-sized French bread loaf
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1-1/2 C diced strawberries (about 10 medium strawberries)
1 C finely diced mango (about 1 medium mango)
1 C finely diced kiwi (about 3 kiwi)

1/2 C  Sour Cream
3 Tbsp. honey
1 tsp orange zest

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Slice bread into 1/2 inch slices.  Place in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Use a pastry brush to brush each piece with melted butter.  Combine cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle evenly over bread slices.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are toasted.  Set aside to cool.

While bread is toasting, combine Breakstone’s Sour Cream, honey, and orange zest.  Stir to combine and place in the fridge.

Combine strawberries, mango, and kiwi and stir gently to combine. When bread is cooled, place about 1 Tbsp. of fruit mixture on top of each toasted bread slice and drizzle with sweet sour cream mixture.  If needed, thin sour cream sauce with 1/2-1 tsp orange juice.  Garnish with mint leaves if desired.  Serve immediately.
