Ingredients

  • 4 Roma tomatoes seeds scooped out, diced
  • 8 ounces mozzarella cheese diced
  • fresh basil leaves chopped
  • 1 baguette sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Instructions

  • Slice a baguette into ¾-inch slices.
  • Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Melt 1 tbsp butter and toast the bread until golden color on both sides. When done, just set aside to cool off.
  • Cut the tomatoes in halves, and using a spoon, scoop out the seeds with the liquid and discard. Then dice the tomatoes.
  • Dice mozzarella cheese, basil, and mix it together with chopped tomatoes.
  • Add 1 tbsp olive oil, pinch of salt and mix again.
  • Transfer the toasted bread to the serving plate and top with tomato/mozzarella/basil mixture.
  • Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve.

Notes

  • Tomatoes. Tomatoes have lots of liquid inside. To make sure your filing is not watery, scoop out the inside flesh with seeds before dicing.
  • Bread. I like to use fresh baguette that’s still soft inside with delicious outside crust.
  • How to store. You can refrigerate the filling in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
