Bruschetta is one of my favorite appetizers to serve at a dinner party, or even just to treat my family for a relaxing night at home. You just can't beat crispy baguette slices topped with deliciousness!
This recipe for Ricotta Bocconcini Bruschetta is done two ways - one with colorful heirloom tomatoes, and the other with earthy mushrooms. Both have a deliciously creamy ricotta bocconcini mixture underneath for a flavor you just can't beat! Serve these up and they'll be gone in no time!
