“I had this in an Italian Restaurant close to home. This is my version. Make extra because these little treats disappear rather quickly.”

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler. Brush the slices of bread lightly with olive oil, and place on a baking sheet. Toast under the broiler for about 3 minutes. Watch carefully. Rub each crostini with a garlic clove for flavor.
  2. Place the tomatoes into a medium bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the crostini on a serving tray. Top each one with a slice of mozzarella cheese, cover with a spoonful of tomatoes, and garnish with fresh basil.

I actually heated the olive oil on low heat and then added some crushed garlic to it. I usually do about 1/3 cup of oil to 1 tsp of garlic. However, it can be altered, depending upon how strong of a garlic flavor you want. After I heat the oil for 5-7 min, I turn off the heat and remove the garlic pieces. Then, I brush the oil onto the bread. After that, I follow the recipe.

Really good. I, too, added a splash of balsamic, which the tomatoes seemed to be begging for. I put the tomatoes on first, topped it with a slice of fresh mozzarella, then popped it all back in the oven to just melt the cheese. This ensured that the tomatoes didn't fall off--they were held in place by the melted cheese. Oh--and I used sliced grape tomatoes because that's what I had on hand.

Really liked this very much; we got the expensive imported "ball" mozzarella cheese that's almost white in color from the italian store. It made all the difference. And used garlic salt in lieu of the garlic clove being rubbed. This got RAVE reviews from everyone in the house and is a great evening snack!
