Recipe adapted from Jenny Steffens Hobick. For more information, visit her website.
- 1 baguette
- 2 cloves of garlic, peeled
- 3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 8 ounces of fresh mozzarella, sliced
- 6 slices of prosciutto, thinly sliced
- Sea salt & cracked pepper
- Fresh basil, chopped
Prepare the bread by slicing it into thin slices and brush one side with olive oil, making sure to put the oiled side down on a baking sheet or tray. Grill bread just before serving.
Grill the bread for 1-2 minutes. When you remove them from the grill, let them cool slightly, then rub the raw clove of garlic on each piece.
Top each piece of bread with small, thin slices of prosciutto. Then, top each with a slice of fresh mozzarella.
Grill the toasts for 2 minutes, or just until the mozzarella begins to melt.
Remove from the grill or broiler and top with salt, pepper and fresh basil.
