DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to "low" broil.
  • Take an 8x11 cookie tray and spray "lightly" with olive oil no stick spray.
  • Slice the baguette into 1/2 inch slices and spread out to cover the tray.
  • Slice cherry tomatoes in half.
  • Note: the next two steps must be watched carefully to avoid a burnt app.
  • Drizzle a "small" amount of extra virgin olive oil over the slices and pop in the oven until "lightly" browned. Here you can add a bit of minced garlic to taste.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle a small amount of mozzarella on each. Pop back in oven until cheese is "barely" melted.
  • Remove from oven and put a dollop of pesto topped with a half cherry tomato on each slice. Serve and get ready to make more.
