How to Make Strawberry Bruschetta (Homemade Style)

Step-by-Step

  1. Toast bread in toaster.
  2. In skillet over high heat, add sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice and cook; stirring constantly, until sugar melts and the mixture begins to bubble (about 30 seconds to a minute). Add strawberries and stir until juice begins to ooze and the strawberries are heated through (about 30 seconds to a minute more).
