PROSCIUTTO & MOZZARELLA CROSTINI
1 thin baguette, cut into 8 thin slices, save the rest for other uses
1 large clove garlic
Extra-virgin olive oil
8 thin slices fresh mozzarella cheese
8 thin slices Prosciutto di Parma
Freshly ground black pepper
Basil leaves, thinly sliced, for garnish
Place sliced bread on a baking sheet and place under the broiler until golden brown, about 2 minutes, per side.
Let cool slightly and then rub the top side of each with the clove of garlic.
Drizzle or brush on a little olive oil and place a slice of mozzarella cheese on top.
Return to the turned off oven and let cheese slightly melt, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Top each crostino with a slice of prosciutto and drizzle on a little olive oil.
Add a little freshly ground black pepper and sprinkle on some basil leaves.
Serves 2 to 4
