Caprese Toast

I came home one night last week and the girls begged me to make them a snack.  Most mothers do not want to make teenage girls snacks at 10 p.m., but I realized I had a forgotten fresh Semifreddi baguette and didn’t want it to go to waste because they are so good (click here to read more on Senifreddi’s  http://www.yelp.com/biz/semifreddis-bakery-kensington).  

This took only a few minutes and the kids were ecstatic.  There is nothing like a little late night carb after a workout.

Caprese Toasts

1/2 baguette sliced

1 small tomato finely diced

1 clove garlic finely chopped 

2 teaspoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon Balsamic vinegar

Basil leaves 6-10 washed

Salt and pepper to taste 

Mozzarella Cheese (small balls)

 

Preparation

Preheat oven on broil.  Cut bread into slices.  Dice and chop tomato and garlic and place in a small bowl.  Add olive oil and balsamic vinegar and stir.  Tear basil leaves into small pieces.   Place bread on a cookie sheet and spoon tomato mixture onto bread.  Add several cheese balls and a few basil leaves.  

Place under broiler and cook until cheese is melted.  I would try really hard not to walk away from the oven, but to be patient and keep a close eye on these so they don’t burn.  If your wondering, yes I have done this.  And people get really upset when this happens.
