The bruschetta with ham and melon they are an alternative way to bring to the table one of the most loved Italian appetizers, rejuvenating it a little and making it more appealing. The procedure, as you can imagine, is very simple: essentially, all you have to do is toast the bread and place the ingredients on it. But I wanted to give an innovative touch to everything, adding a light layer of my mozzarella mousse. If you prefer, you can omit it, or replace it with a thin layer of stracciatella, or even more simply with a thin slice of mozzarella: in all cases, let me know what you think of the new way of bringing ham and melon to the table;)

Method

How to make ham and melon bruschetta

First, cut the bread into slices that are not too thick (about 1-1.5 cm) and toast it in the oven for 5 minutes at 180 ° C in a pre-heated ventilated oven, or on a hot non-stick plate.

Prepare the mousse: cut the mozzarella into pieces, put it in a mixer with cream, salt and oil, and blend (you can also use a blender).

Take the 2 slices of melon, remove the seeds and the peel, then divide them into thin slices and then in half (in order to have thin and not too long pieces, more easily manageable on a bruschetta).

Assemble the bruschetta: spread a layer of mousse on the bread, then add the ham first and then the melon.

The ham and melon bruschetta are ready: decorated with fresh basil and served.
