Caprese Toasts

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 You'll Need:
  • 1 loaf French or Italian bread, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups tomato basil sauce, warmed
  • 1 (8-ounce) fresh mozzarella ball, cut into thin slices
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
What To Do:
  1. Preheat the broiler.
     
  2. Place bread slices on 2 baking sheets.
     
  3. 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.
     
  4. Remove bread slices from oven and place one slice of mozzarella cheese on each. Broil 1 minute, or until cheese is slightly melted.
     
  5. 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.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

how do you make warm tomato/basil sauce?

Since this recipe was adapted from Barilla, the tomato basil sauce is one of Barilla's flavors of jarred sauce. If you would like a recipe to make your own sauce, here is a link to the pasta sauces from Mr. Food; http://www.mrfood.com/Pasta-Sauce. Enjoy!

Do you broil brush and broil both sides of the bread....or just one side and then put the cheese on the other side and broil?

Tried these for a book club meeting I hosted & everyone loved how fresh and tasty they were! I was happy they were easy to pull together & looked fancy :)
