Tomato Basil Mozzarella Toasts

With a garden bursting with tomatoes back in June, I had inspiration to look up new recipes for tomato use.

This was a yummy and delicious summer meal!

Tomato Basil Mozzarella Toasts


1 crusty French Baguette
8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese ball
4 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced (I used up some of my smaller Better Boy tomatoes.)
4 basil leaves, finely chopped


1.  Heat oven to High broil.

2.  Slice the baguette in half, lengthwise, so that you are left with two long halves of bread.  Slice the mozzarella ball into very thin slices.  Sliced the tomatoes into thin slices.  Layer mozzarella slices along the bread, cut size up.

3.  Place on a baking tray and broil for 3-4 minutes or until mozzarella has begun to melt and bubble slightly.  Remove from oven and lay tomato slices on top.

4.  Return to oven for 1-2 more minutes.  Remove from oven.  Sprinkle with fresh chopped basil.  Slice into pieces.  Garnish very lightly with salt and pepper, if desired.
