Recipe by Joey D from NYC
This is a simple recipe for a great appetizer, especially before a hearty Italian meal or as a selection at a cocktail party. I threw it together because I love all of the ingredients on their own and they're amazing together.
- 4 white bread, slices crusts removed
- 16 thin slices prosciutto
- 4 small buffalo milk mozzarella cheese, cut in half
- 2 roma tomatoes, sliced
- extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
- fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped to garnish
