If you are Italian, look away. This is not a traditional Italian bruschetta bread and you may or may not be mad at me. Just hear me out, I promise it’s delicious.

My mom makes this creamy bruschetta bread for every party and after it flew off the graze table at Christmas, I knew it was something to share ASAP.

It’s a delicious appetizer for any occasion whether it’s a bridal shower, game day, or for the holidays.

Bruschetta Bread Ingredients

  • French loaf or baguette. You want it to have a bit of “sturdiness”. If the bread is too soft, you can toast it in the oven.
  • Herb and garlic cream cheese. I used the spreadable Phillidephia Herb and Garlic Cream cheese.
  • Medium sized tomato. A regular tomato is fine, but if you only have cherry tomatoes on hand use those.
  • Cooked bacon. I used 5 strips, use as much as you would like.
  • Green onions. I cut up two stalks.

That’s it’s. It’s just the baguette slices and a delicious cream cheese mixture, a tasty twist on classic bruschetta that’s primarily olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, and balsamic vinegar.

Best Bread for Bruschetta

The type of bread for bruschetta is either french bread or a baguette.

You could use the wider loaf of bread (french bread) and cut it into squares or you can use a baguette and slice it into rounds.

This time I used a multigrain baguette (regular white baguette was out of stock at the grocery store) and sliced it.

If the bread is too soft, you can leave it out for a few hours to dry out or you could toast it for a few minutes in the oven.

Supplies Needed

You don’t need anything special to make this appetizer.
