Roasted Strawberry Bruschetta

Recipe Credit: YumSugar
I made some modifications to the recipe because I really don't like goat cheese, and I think the texture of the raw arugula throws everything off (but that's just me)


2 cups strawberries, hulled
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 loaf ciabatta bread
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup of brown sugar
salt and freshly ground black pepper


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Get a large bowl and mix the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Slice the strawberries into the bowl and gently mix to coat. Spread strawberries out on a baking sheet and bake for five minutes. Remove and let cool.

3. Cut the ciabatta into equal slices, coat with olive oil, and broil on each side until toasted and crisp.

4. Spread feta cheese on hot bread, top equally with the roasted berries and juice. Season with salt, pepper, and a little more brown sugar. Enjoy!
