    ms_bold's Note:

    This recipe was found on the epicurious.com website. I have been holding it for some time and finally had a chance to sample it at a party that I recently hosted. The website describes this as "flame-roasted mozzarella cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil squeezed between grilled bread slices or crackers." What could be better? You will need 2 to 6 long barbecue forks or skewers. We prepared this over a fire pit and found that the metal skewers became very hot while roasting the cheese. Forks with wooden handles are recommended.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pieces

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the tomatoes in an attractive serving bowl.
    2. 2
      Arrange the mozzarella, basil leaves, and grilled bread or crackers in bowls or on a platter.
    3. 3
      Set up the grill for direct grilling and preheat to high. In the best of all worlds, you'd use a charcoal grill, raking the embers into a pile at the bottom of the grill and leaving off the grill grate. If using a gas grill, preheat it superhot.
    4. 4
      Skewer a cube of mozzarella. Roast it over the fire, turning the skewer to evenly melt the cheese. If using a gas grill, you'll need to bring it as close as possible to the fire without touching the grate. When the mozzarella begins to melt and brown, after 1 to 2 minutes over charcoal, a little longer over gas, use a knife or fork to scrape the cheese off the skewer onto a piece of grilled bread. Never attempt to eat the melted cheese directly off the hot skewer — you'll burn your lips. Top the cheese with a basil leaf and a piece of sun-dried tomato and place a second piece of grilled bread on top. Eat at once.
    5. 5
      NOTE: Sun-dried tomatoes come in two forms: oil-packed and dried. Oil-packed tomatoes just need to be drained before you use them. The dried kind need to be soaked in water and marinated in olive oil. To reconstitute the tomatoes, place them in a heatproof bowl and add boiling water to cover. Let soak for 1 hour. Drain the tomatoes well and blot dry. Toss with the olive oil.
