Ingredients

  • 5

    whole tomatoes cleaned and diced

  • 1

    tablespoon dried oregano

  • 1

    cup fresh basil leaves, washed and spun dry, and roughly chopped

  • 4

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 8

    cloves garlic, peeled (chop three cloves)

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2

    large French baguettes, sliced 1-inch thick (about 36 slices)

  • lbs. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced ¼ inch thick

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Place tomatoes and the two chopped garlic cloves in a bowl and season with the salt and pepper and oregano. On a large baking sheet, line up baguette slices. Toast in oven for about 3 minutes or until light golden brown. Working quickly, rub the remaining garlic on the toasted side of each slice and then lay a piece of mozzarella cheese on top. Place bread back in oven and melt cheese slightly, about 45 seconds. Remove from oven and spread on tablespoon of the tomato mixture on each piece. Sprinkle chopped basil over all the baguettes. Serve warm.
