8oz ball fresh Mozzarella
4 slices bread
4 Tbsp pesto
2 Tbsp butter or margarine
4 slices fresh tomato
fresh basil or spinach (optional)
- Slice mozzarella ball into 1/4″ thick slices
- Spread each slice of bread with 1 Tbsp pesto on one side and 1/2 tbsp butter on the other
- Place 2 slices of bread, butter-side-down on a plate. Top with as many mozzarella slices as will fit, then tomato slices, then season with salt and pepper. Add fresh basil and/or spinach and top with remaining bread slices.
