Everyone always LOVES these delicious and simple Tomato Basil Mozzarella Toasts. Serve them as a side dish or appetizer. A crusty baguette toasted with fresh mozzarella and tomato and garnished with basil.

Baguettes cut in half lengthwise and widthwise and topped with Tomato, fresh Basil, and Mozzarella .

One day I hope to have an amazing garden that produces so many tomatoes, zucchini, bell peppers, green beans, and squash that I can’t eat them fast enough!

My grandpa had the most beautiful garden and we reaped the benefits every summer during my youth. It had every amazing vegetable you could want and it, and had over 30 raspberry bushes, apricot trees, cherry trees and plum trees. We loved going to grandma and grandpa’s house and picking from their garden.

Whenever I hear people say they don’t like tomatoes I’m convinced they’ve never tried a tomato straight from the garden. There is nothing more delicious!

Having a garden like that of mine own would be a dream–but I’d probably have to hire a gardener because I’m about the farthest thing from a “green thumb” when it comes to taking care of plants. For now I’ll have to be happy with a fresh little herb pot outside my door.

Tomato mozzarella basil toasts were a regular part of summer meals in my youth. We’d have them as a main dish, with lots of fresh fruit and grilled veggies. We’d often eat them as a heart snack, or even as an appetizer. My mom recently made these as part of the food at a bridal shower for my cousin and they were a huge hit. They’re SO EASY to make, and they look as a amazing as they taste.

    Absolutely amazing! Tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella in some form would be my last meal for sure! I just love the combination of those ingredients. This was so good, I cant wait to make it again! Maybe a little garlic butter next time, I tried a little with balsamic glaze but it was too sweet. Perfect recipe!

    These were so delicious! The only thing different I did was to put a little garlic butter on the bread before I toasted it. My duaghter and I are in love and already planning to make them again! So so so yummy!

    I made these as a dish for a Bridal Shower buffet. I place both long pieces of baguette to broil and when they
    were finished cut them into @ 2-1/2″ pieces to plate. I got many comment on how delicious they were.
    Super easy too! Winner!
