Fruit Bruschetta Cooking View

So often when I take the time to actually make a breakfast at home, it’s something on the heavy side (waffles, pancakes, etc.)  This fruit bruschetta is like a breath of fresh air into breakfast time.  Not only does it taste amazing, it is light, colorful and healthy, and a pleasant change from the usual breakfast fare.   What a wonderful way to start the day!

I started with thin slices of challah toast spread with a little bit of butter and sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar.  Then I combined finely chopped kiwi, strawberries, banana, and pineapple and spooned the mixture onto the toast rounds.  Finally I drizzled a bit of vanilla yogurt over the top of each piece.  We all loved it and there was not a bite left over.  Ben and I both agreed that this would be a perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch, and I will definitely be making this again to bring to our next brunch with his parents.  Of course one of the best things about this recipe is that it is so easily adapted to whatever fruits are in season.  I can’t wait to try it in the summer with some fresh peaches and blueberries from the farmers’ market.  Yum!

    This looks SO good! We typically make fruit pizza (with sugar cookie dough rolled out), but I love this twist on the idea! I’m definitely bookmarking this one

    Oh, I bet challah was a lot better for this than the rustic French bread I used. I’ll have to keep that in mind!

    I love challah and since I don’t (sad) have the space to bake anything that must be rolled or braided, I do the next best thing… I head to Klein Brot Haus Bakery in Brookston, Indiana. The challah there is awesome. I love this idea, I use my challah for bread and butter pudding and french toast. I think this recipe might be perfectly timed for a trip to Brookston.

    Good idea! I need more fruit in my life! Hmmm… perhaps my New Years Resolution (a few weeks late).

    What a wonderful idea. I can’t wait to try this as we get closer to warm weather and there’s more fruit in season!

    That would make a great appetizer or a dessert! I love fresh fruit on cake or bread. Sounds delicious.

    What a cute idea! Instead of yogurt, a thin slice of cheese might even be amazing.

    Made this last weekend for brunch, with a thin drizzle of cream cheese icing instead of yogurt, it was fantastic! Even my husband, who is not a fruit person, loved it!

    I made this last weekend and they were such a hit! I cheated though and bought some store bought challah bread. Keep the recipes coming!
