Tuna Melt Bruschetta is ready to serve!

– Choose rustic country bread or crusty baguettes. You need to slice on a diagonal shape to get longer pieces. The bread will be easier to handle on the grill. – Brush the bread with olive oil so it browns more evenly on the grill. – Set the temperature in a medium-hot. If you use the gas, the fire should be medium hot. The bread will burn if the temperature or fire is too hot. However, if too cool, the bread dries out before it gets well grill marks. – If you plan to hold the bruschetta for a while, be sure to cut the bread while it’s warm or it tends to crack. – You can use any toppings you like. It doesn’t have a limit for the bruschetta. – The number of servings you’ll get out of each topping recipe will depend on how large your bread slices are and how you plan to serve the bruschetta.
