  • Begin this BBQ bacon bruschetta recipe by making the tomato bruschetta recipe.
  • Start by putting your tomatoes on the BBQ until they’ve charred slightly, then remove them.
  • Chop the tomatoes up, as well as the shallots.
  • Combine the tomatoes, shallots, garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a bowl.
  • Add our Double Smoked Streaky British Bacon to the BBQ, alongside thick slices of bread with a drizzle of olive oil.
  • When the bread is nicely charred, and the bacon is crispy, top the bread with pesto. Add burrata or mozzarella cheese (if you like a mozzarella bruschetta recipe, or you can leave the cheese completely for a dairy free option)​.
  • Top the bacon bruschetta with the bruschetta mix, then the crispy bacon chopped into shards and a few fresh basil leaves. Tuck in!
