Every time I visit family, we inevitably end up eating, at least once, at the greatest bruschetta restaurant....ever. Postinos, is known in the local area, and beyond, for its famous and delicious bruschetta selections. If you are ever in the Scottsdale, AZ vicinity, walk (...no run) to Postinos! Because I am only in AZ a couple of times a year, I am not able to have their bruschetta at my beck and call....so I decided to make it myself! Well, my busy mom version of bruschetta...
Postinos has a never ending variety of bruschetta on hand, but the last time I visited, the fig, apple and brie stood out to me the most. Sweet and savory rolled into one delicious bite after the next! Here's my version:
Sliced Wheat Sandwich Bread or Cinnamon Raisin Bread (yow-zers!)
Baby Brie Cheese Wheel
Sliced Granny Smith Apples
Fig Butter (butter is really the best because it is less sweet than jam or other fig spreads)
Toast 2 pieces of sandwich bread in your toaster to desired crispness (in my opinion, the crispier, the better). While waiting on the bread, cut a few sections of brie from the cheese wheel, remove rind. Cut about 2/3 of a granny smith apple into small slices, set aside. When bread has toasted, spread brie over the top of warm toast. Next spread a layer of fig butter over the brie. Add sliced apples on top of the fig butter, and finally, drizzle with honey!
That's it, enjoy! This little snack is so irresistible -- I have literally had this for lunch every day this week! And although it surely doesn't look as pretty as the Postinos version, it tastes just as good and is a quick, healthy eat for a busy mom!
