Summer: ‘tis the season of endless days, hot nights and entertaining. I love having friends and family over to celebrate the long days and warm nights. I don’t, however, love racking my brain for simple, scrumptious appetizers. If you (like me) struggle when searching for the perfect hors d’oeuvre – fear not!  You’ve come to the right place. With summer rapidly approaching, I have an appetizer that’s sure to please every guest, on every occasion.

You’ll need…
1 sourdough baguette
2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled
3 tbs. butter (or olive oil, if you have more will power than I do)
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, sliced
6 thin slices of prosciutto
fresh basil, chopped

Begin by cutting your baguette into thin slices.  Brush the bread with melted butter (or olive oil) on both sides.

Broil (or grill) for 1-2 minutes on both sides, or until you’ve achieved a golden brown color (or grill marks).  Remove your toast from the oven/grill, let the slices cool slightly, and then rub the raw clove of garlic on each piece. Top each toast with thin slices of prosciutto.  Then, top each with a slice of fresh mozzarella.  Broil or grill for 2 minutes (or until the mozzarella begins to melt).  Remove from the grill or broiler and top with fresh chopped basil.

Voila! Not only did you prepare a beautifully delectable appetizer, you did it in 10 minutes and awed the masses.

    Beautiful presentation and we were lucky enough to enjoy these delightful nuggets of goodness. Loved the slight garlic bite accompanied with salty prosciutto and fresh mozarella., with the finish of a little fresh basil. Amazing!
