Recipe by: Rae


Ingredients

2 TBSP oil
1 6oz par-cooked mini baguette
salt & pepper
1 TBSP oil
10 oz grape tomatoes, diced
1/2 tsp sugar
1 clove garlic, slice as thin as possible

Olive oil

Directions

1. Toss the tomatoes and sugar together and let sit.

2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Slice the baguette into 1/4 inch slices, getting 30 pieces. (Freezing the bread for just 1/2 hour will help you get a clean cut)

3. Place a cooking rack over a baking sheet and arrange the slices of bread on top in a single layer spacing a 1/2 inch apart.

4. Brush with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

5. Bake in the oven until crisp and dried. About 8 minutes,turn and 4 minutes more. Allow to cool on the sheet.

6. In the meantime heat the oil in a 12 inch nonstick skillet over high until smoking hot. Add the garlic and toss once add the tomatoes and toss together. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for 1 minute 30 seconds stirring often. Turn off the heat.

7. Assemble your apps: Place a piece of basil leaf on top of each crostini off to the left side. Then add a piece of mozzarella in the center. Spoon a tsp of the tomato mixture off to the right side on top the crostini. You should have three distinct colors on top of each bread.



Notes/Tips

Once finished the crostinis should resemble little Italian flags.
