Peach, Mozzarella and Basil Bruschetta / Bruschetta de Melocotón, Mozzarella y Albahaca

And here’s the last part of the august 3/1 seasonal challenge. I hope you guys enjoy this light dinner as much as we did. It’s like summer in bruschetta form: sweet, juicy peaches; ooey melty fresh mozzarella and lovely summery basil on top of crusty bread, baked to crispy perfection and then drizzled with balsamic vinegar (which I forgot to picture, I’m sorry!)… because, how can you go wrong with the peach + balsamic combo?? It’s a summer favourite for me!
These bruschettas take very little time to put together, so they make a perfect light dinner for those days when you don’t really feel like spending lots of time in the kitchen, but prefer being outside enjoying the last days of summer 😉

Makes 4 bruschettas:
1/2 a baguette
1 fresh mozzarella ball (125gr.)
1 red peach
a few basil leaves
balsamic vinegar
Divide the baguette into tow parts and then halve those so you can four pieces of bread. Or simply use whatever bread you prefer and make as much bruschettas as you want.
Slice the peach and mozzarella ball and arrange the slices on top of the bread. Chop the basil leaves and sprinkle them on top of the bruschetta.
Bake for 10 minutes at 220ºC. Check the oven to see if it’s done before that time, if it looks golden and crispy, you’re good to go!
Sorry this is such a short post, but it’s been raining and storming a lot for the past few days and electricity and wifi connection go down too often, so I thought I’d better write my post before wifi went down again!

Y aquí estoy de vuelta con la última receta del “3/1 seasonal challenge”. Espero que os guste tanto como a nosotros. Está tan buena, que es como comerse el verano en forma de tostada. Dulces melocotones, mozzarella fundida y fresca albahaca sobre pan crujiente, todo ello horneado hasta que quede crujiente, y después, aderezado con vinagre balsámico (que se me olvidó poner en la foto). ¡Ésa si que es una buena combinación!

Y además se tarda poquísimo en hacer estas bruschettas, así que son una cena ligera perfecta para los días en los que no apetece meterse en la cocina, sino salir a disfrutar los últimos días de verano.

Para cuatro bruschettas necesitaremos:
1/2 baguette
1 bola de mozzarella fresca (125gr.)
1 melocotón rojo
unas hojas de albahaca
vinagre balsámico
Partid la media baguette en dos, y abrid esos dos trozos hasta conseguir cuatro trozos de pan. O podéis usar el pan que queráis y hacer cuántas bruschettas queráis. Haced rodajas el melocotón y la mozzarella y colocadlos sobre el pan. Añadid la albahaca picada y meted al horno a 200ºC unos 10 minutos.
Siento que este post sea tan corto. Con la de tormentas que hay por aquí estos días, la electricidad va y viene, y lo mismo pasa con el wifi. Por eso quería subir la entrada rápido, antes de que volviese a irse.
Un beso,
Consuelo

    Nos encanta la combinación de queso y melocotón. Así cambiamos un poco del tomate y mozarella, aunque también esta muy bueno…

    This looks so good! Peaches, basil and mozzarella are so good together 😀 I really like all of your recipes with peaches. Especially the salad with grilled peaches and goat cheese. I made that one two nights in a row 😉 It was great!
