Sweet Breakfast Bruschetta

March 24, 2014

Author Notes: One of the best things about living in Italy, is gaining an appreciation of simply beautiful food. Here quality reigns and when dealing with quality goods, it's best to let their taste and beauty shine. This is my twist on the simple typical eat at home Italian breakfast "pane, burro e marmellata", substituting the "burro" for mascarpone.
I opted for strawberries as the season has just started here in Italy, and the market is filled with the sweet succulent fruit. The proportions are a guide, the ones I liked most, but spread on as you like and keep it simple. Enjoy!
