This is the perfect party appetizer. With its combination of fresh mozzarella, basil and other Italian themed ingredients, Caprese Toasts will go fast, so make plenty!
What To Do:
- Preheat the broiler.
- Place bread slices on 2 baking sheets.
- In a bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, and salt; mix well. Brush mixture on each slice of bread and broil 2 to 4 minutes, or until golden.
- Remove bread slices from oven and place one slice of mozzarella cheese on each. Broil 1 minute, or until cheese is slightly melted.
- Remove from oven, spoon an equal amount of warm tomato–basil sauce on each slice, and top with chopped fresh basil. Serve immediately.
Makes about 2 dozen pieces.
