Ingredients

  • 6-8 slices of good crusty Italian bread
  • 8 oz of fresh mozzarella sliced thin
  • 16 oz of fresh tomatoes - I had cherry tomatoes and they were perfect cut in half
  • Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Leaves from either oregano or basil chopped
  • Salt and Pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice cherry tomatoes in half or if using larger tomatoes, chop then into good size chunks and let them drain. Drizzle with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar and gently toss them to coat.
  • Slice the bread and lay the slices on a cookie sheet (or two if necessary)
  • Brush the top with olive oil and bake for approximately 10 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • Layer the slices of mozzarella on top of each slice of bread, top with the tomatoes and return the bread to the oven for 2-3 minutes to warm the tomatoes and soften the cheese.
  • Remove from oven; drizzle with more olive oil, top with herb(s) and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Notes

Best served with the absolute best tomatoes you can find.
