Summer Recipe #4

Nothing says summer like tomatoes and basil.  Below is a yummy recipe that uses both for a great summer appetizer.

Preheat oven or toaster oven to 300 Degrees F
  • Crusty French Bread, sliced into oval discs about 1/4 to 1/2 in thickness
  • Tomatoes seeded and sliced
  • Mozzarella sliced
  • Fresh Basil
  • Crushed garlic
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Unlike baking, exact measurements are not needed for these appetizers. The amount of each ingredient is based on personal preference.  Take the slices of French Bread medallions, place them on baking sheet (that has been sprayed with non stick spray or use parchment paper).  Brush on a very light coating of olive oil on each slice of bread then top with a small amount of crushed garlic.  Place in oven and toast up bread until it is slightly golden.  May take around 5-10 minutes or so.  Take bread slices out of oven, put enough tomato on each slice of bread to cover, then place mozzarella slice on top with sprig of fresh basil and salt and pepper to taste.
