This lovely breakfast bruschetta is the perfect way to start the day. Simple to put together, this makes for a super healthy breakfast or brunch or snack. The combination of sweet fruits really compliments the tangy creamy cottage cheese. Any combination of fruits are good, but for best results use whats in season and local and organic if possible.

  • 125 – 250 grams cottage cheese or fresh ricotta
