4 slices of crusty bread (Italian, Sour Dough or French) 1/3 cup ricotta cheese 2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
Salt and pepper, to taste 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided 2 cups Mini Mixers® tomatoes
Combine ricotta and chopped basil. Set aside
Toast bread in toaster, on grill pan or barbecue grill until lightly browned
While bread is toasting, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Add Mini Mixers® and cook for a couple of minutes, shaking the pan regularly to ensure browning on all sides, wrinkled and softened
Spread the ricotta mixture evenly over four slices of freshly toasted bread and top with blistered Mini Mixers® being sure to mix up the colors. Drizzle tops with remaining olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately
Other kinds of soft cheese can replace the ricotta such as Mascarpone, soft fresh cheese or flavored cream cheese. If you like a little spice, add some chili flakes on top of the tomatoes.
