Cheese Bruschetta – learn to make your perfect Italian snack

If you are like me and you don’t skip a day without your afternoon snack, then cheese bruschetta is a perfect solution.

What I love about it, is that you can make it with whatever ingredients you have at home.

Today I will show you how to make a protein rich fresh cheese bruschetta’s.

As fresh cottage cheese contains low carbs, but its high in protein and low in sodium it is perfect for people that are conscious about their weight and are looking for healthy quick meals. Adding few slices of fresh radishes and green olives will leave your taste buds satisfied and craving for more.

With a touch of dill your cheese bruschetta will have irresistible taste.

In Italy we make bruschetta’s all year round, but in summer it becomes a quick lunch or dinner or you can use them for your aperitivo. Just by adding a salad on a side and some prosciutto or eggs omelet you have a nice rounded meal which you can prepare in less than 20 min.

However, you can be as creative as you want and prepare yours with ingredients you have on hand. There is no limit to your creativity and how you combine ingredients. So, just play around and try your perfect combination.

To prepare this yummy cottage cheese bruschetta I have used:

  • 4 slices of the integral bread
  • 100 grams of cottage cheese
  • 5 radishes
  • 4  green olives
  • 4 basil leaves
  • salt and dry dill


Slice the bred and toast it on both sides, just to get nice thin crust. It should become crunchy on the outside but still soft on inside.

While you are toasting the bread (you can do it in toaster, in oven on grill mode or simply in frying pan) slice the radishes and olives.

As soon as you take out warm bread spread the cheese and garnish it with veggies and salt and dill as desired.

The warmth of the bread and cold cheese will create perfect combination. 🙂

Buon appetito!
