Perfect+Melts in your mouth
I have always wanted to try to make bruschetta and I am SO happy that I did! These are so good and literally melt in your mouth. They are crispy and pop the second you eat them. Eat them for an appetizer while other delicious food is awaiting, or eat them with steak or chicken. The parmesan on top pulls it together and adds something extra. I LOVE these things!
