Smashed Blackberry Bruschetta

Hello everyone! Happy Bruschetta time. Oh I certainly meant happy Wednesday!

Bruschetta Time!

But I am not too wrong about bruschetta. That’s one of my favourite thing to enjoy in summer. Indeed, I could easily live on bruschetta (along with salads, cheese, fruit, veggies, and ice cream) for the entire summer. Who is with me? (Okay Daisy insists that prosciutto and scallops should be in this list, too. Noted haha!)

Anyway, I have many bruschetta and crostini ideas on this blog to suit anyone’s taste. If you like savoury things, you would probably like this Sun-Dried Tomato Eggplant Bruschetta or this Charred Corn Sweet Pepper Crostini. Sweet and savoury combination lovers? I’ve got many delicious ideas! What about this Rhubarb Honey Cardamom Crostini or this Whipped Feta Blueberry Crostini?

Now, who is excited about this Smashed Blackberry Bruschetta? It’s fresh, luscious, and quite beautiful! Also, it’s a breeze to make. Basically, we are going to slightly mash the fresh blackberries and combine them with honey, thyme, and lemon zest. So easy yet absolutely scrumptious and elegant.

Also, bruschetta is usually made with some rustic bread rather than with baguette. However, I used not just any baguette – a homemade sourdough baguette for this recipe, so it’s perfectly appropriate. Oh man, that sourdough baguette was so good! But you can use any bread of your choice, of course. I just personally think that baguette-kind of bread looks nifty when paired with delicate toppings.

I hope you like this Smashed Blackberry Bruschetta, and you will it a try soon! If you make it, let me know in this post or send me anĀ InstagramĀ  message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.

Cheers!

    My mouth actually watered as I scrolled through the beautiful photos, what a scrumptious looking bruschetta! Amazing ingredients as always and I love the addition of thyme.

    What a fun idea! I love blackberries, but I’ve never used them in a sweet + savory bruschetta recipe. This sounds perfect for a summer appetizer with a glass of white wine! We make tomato bruschetta with fresh mozzarella all the time, but now I want to mix it up and try this blackberry + goat cheese version.
