Serves 40 | Prep Time | Cook Time 3 - 5


1 lb mozzarella prosciutto basil roll from a good deli
2 fresh baguettes, about 1.5 lbs
1 package (12 oz) small tomatoes on the vine

Slice the baguette on a bias into ½ inch thick pieces, ending up with about 40 slices.

Slice the cheese roll and the tomatoes into about 1/8 inch thick pieces, ending up with a similar number.

Variation: For a vegetarian option, layer a slice of fresh mozzerella and a large basil leaf instead of the roll.

Place bread slices on a baking sheet and top each with a slice of the cheese roll.

Broil the bites for 3-5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown.

Move to a serving platter and allow them to cool for a minute or two, then top with a tomato slice and serve.

These are also good without the tomatoes.

These are an easy and elegant appetizer that I first encounted at a friend's house and tweaked.
