    Strawberry Bruschetta

    WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

    Strawberry Bruschetta

    Astoundingly good for minimal effort, this makes an indulgent weekend breakfast or anyday dessert. A judicious smear of mascarpone (half the fat of butter) is part of the luxury, but even lighter low-fat cream cheese will work as well. The real secret is warming the berries just enough to make the flavor bloom and transform their juices into a rosy syrup.

    This Recipe Is:
    Ingredients
    Prep: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes
    • 4   thick slices
      whole-wheat bread
    • 6   tablespoons
      light brown sugar
    • 1   teaspoon
      grated lemon zest
    • 2   teaspoons
      lemon juice
    • 3   cups
      sliced or diced hulled strawberries
    • 4   tablespoons
      mascarpone, (Italian cream cheese)
    Instructions
    1. Toast bread in a toaster.
    2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over high heat. Add sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice and cook, stirring, until the sugar melts and the mixture begins to bubble, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add strawberries and stir until juices begin to exude and the berries are heated through, 30 seconds to 1 minute more.
    3. Spread 1 tablespoon mascarpone on each piece of toast. Top with the warm berries.
