Tropical Breakfast Bruschetta Recipe

This Tropical Breakfast Bruschetta is inspired by the bruschetta Chef Lee Anne Wong serves at her Oahu restaurant, Koko Head Cafe, which was the first stop on our Off Menu: Honolulu episode. I love that this bruschetta combines local fruit and flavors (like pineapple and macadamia nuts) but modernizes it. The coolest part about it to me is the toast, which is a take on a sweet buttery Japanese baked cracker known as rusk. Her cooking and this recipe really reflect food in Hawaii right now – it’s is a little indulgent, has influences of the local ethnic groups, and uses local food.

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

Ingredients
  

For The Rusk Toast:

  • 1 stale French (aka sweet) baguette cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup unrefined cane sugar
  • Vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 medium lime for garnish

For The Bruschetta:

  • Mango, strawberries, and pineapple trimmed and thinly sliced
  • Honey for garnish

Instructions
 

  • To Make The Rusk Toast: Heat oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and nest a wire rack inside the baking sheet.
  • Place sugar in a shallow plate. Brush each slice of bread with butter then dip the bread in the sugar and tap off any excess sugar. Place the bread on the wire rack.
  • Bake until the bread is golden brown, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the toast to cool completely before assembling.
