Bruschetta comes from the Italian word buscare, which means "to roast over coals." This is good to know so you can sound cultured. This recipe is also good to store in the ole noggin because it takes a seafood twist on an Italian classic with the addition of OLD BAY® seasoned shrimp.
1 pound cooked shrimp, finely chopped
1 plum tomato, finely chopped
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
1 egg white
2 teaspoons OLD BAY® Seasoning
1 loaf French bread
1/4 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix shrimp, tomato, green onion, olive oil, egg white, OLD BAY and garlic powder in medium bowl until blended.
Slice bread into 24 (1/2-inch thick) slices. Place on baking sheet; broil until lightly toasted on both sides. Spread lightly with mayo, then spoon shrimp mixture evenly over bread slices.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through and lightly browned.
Hate tomatoes? Substitute 2 tablespoons chopped red bell pepper. Sweet!
