- Lay out 6 slices of bread.
- Place one piece of mozzarella (can use fresh balls sliced thin) on each.
- Lay on a small piece of prosciutto.

Made these while hosting a small group, & relied on their comments to rate this, 'cause there's no way I'd sink my teeth into an anchovy ANYTHING! Absolutely true, but that doesn't stop me from making something that others might enjoy, & they did, devouringly so! The way they put it, "Hey, Dumb-#*$! You don't know what you're missing!" Ah, so!
