I used to love ordering bruschetta as an appetizer from restaurants or snacking on it while at a party, but realized in the past year that I hadn’t eaten it because they always serve it with bread. The other day I was really having a craving for bruschetta and since I had a few packages of Jilz Gluten Free Crackers in the pantry, I made a fresh homemade batch that satisfied all my cravings. No joke, we ate the whole bowl of bruschetta in one sitting and I’m already planning on getting the ingredients again the next time I’m at the market.

I’ve realized with a lot of signature foods, I like to stick with the classic recipe. This goes for grilled cheese, pizza and so forth. Give me the tried & true and I’m a happy girl. I don’t need fancy concoctions with the latest and greatest ingredients, I just need a really good, simplistic recipe and that’s what this bruschetta is.

For those of you who eat a gluten free dietary lifestyle, you absolutely must try Jilz Crackers. Dipping her crispy tuscan seasoned crackers into this bruschetta made me forget that I was craving the focaccia bread that is commonly served with this appetizer. I find them at my local Whole Foods here on the west coast, but you can always purchase them online via their website as well. Let me know if you’ve tried them!
