Caprese/prociutto bread

Do you need something easy and quick for a party? Well try this. You can take it ready to pop in the oven and broil. I'm sure the host won't mind.

Caprese / Prosciutto Bread - 4 - 6 people
1/2 loaf French bread
1 tomato cut into 8 slices
1/4 lb mozzarella -- cut into 8 slices about 1/8" thick.
8 slices thin prosciutto
Balsamic vinegar
8 leaves of fresh basil cut into half

Bread can be garlic bread, sour dough, or french. Slice it in half then cut each half into four square pieces. Drizzle balsamic vinegar over the bread--this is personal taste of how much you use. Place a slice of prosciutto on each with a tomato slice on top. Then place one piece of mozzarella on top of each. Broil approximately 5 minutes, until the cheese is starting to brown. Remove and place on tray. Garnish each with two half leaves of basil. I drizzled a bit more vinegar on top of the cheese before I broiled. Again this is up to personal taste. Pairs well with Presecco sparkling wine. Enjoy!
