Breakfast Bruschetta

Nuvita Biscuits

Bring a gourmet touch to your family breakfast table with these tasty bruschetta topped with spinach, pancetta, mushrooms and tomato.


  • 500g trussed cherry tomatoes
  • 400g portobello mushrooms, stalks removed
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 24 slices mild pancetta
  • 2 bunches English spinach, trimmed, washed, dried
  • 12 slices sourdough bread
  • 250g fresh ricotta


Preheat oven to 160°C. Place the tomatoes and mushrooms in a roasting pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoonful of oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in oven for 20 minutes or until tomatoes begin to collapse. Remove from oven and set aside.

Meanwhile, heat a large frying pan over high heat. Add the pancetta and cook, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes or until crisp. Transfer to a plate. Reserve and set aside one-quarter of the pancetta (see note). Heat half the remaining oil in the pan and add the spinach. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until spinach just wilts. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

Brush the bread slices with remaining oil. Preheat a char-grill or barbecue. Cook the bread slices for 1 minute each side or until toasted.

Spread the ricotta over bread slices. Top with spinach, pancetta, mushrooms and tomatoes. Serve immediately.

    I’m trying to expand my list of possible meals. I’m looking for stuff that can be cooked, because I already have all the mac n cheese, ramen, and frozen meals down. Any ideas for meals using cheap ingredients?

    Like pasta mixed with frozen chicken tenderloins and canned veggies.

    I’ve got a hike coming up in a few weeks. 35 miles over two days, so I have a few questions;

    1. What snacks would you bring?
    2. What drinks would you bring?
    3. What would you have for dinner/breakfast (Considering it’s a campsite with a gas stove and stuff)

    My favorite fruit is strawberries and my favorite vegetable is a tie between sauteed spinach with garlic and green beans.

    What about your kid(s): My son loves oranges and bananas and his favorite vegetables are peas and corn.

    BQ: What is your favorite snack? Mine is yogurt or celery with cream cheese or peanut butter.
    Sorry Leah! I am eating a bagel with tomatoes, which is something is that my favorite. I didn’t mean to make you starving.
