Who doesn’t love junk food once in awhile? Kevin and I have a few nights each week without any kiddos at home, they are with their other parents on those nights.Sometimes we eat cereal for dinner, leftovers, etc. But every once in awhile I decide to get creative and try something new for just the two of us. I recently decided to experiment with some of our favorite ingredients to create an appetizer aka snack food for the two of us to enjoy while watching a movie on the couch.
Here’s what I came up with:
1 fresh baguette
Roma tomatoes, sliced
Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
Pancetta, pan fried
Fresh parmesan cheese, shredded
Slice the baguette into even slices (the size of each slice is up to you).
Mix melted butter and fresh garlic together.
Brush bread slices with garlic butter.
Place under broiler until the bread just starts to brown.
Remove bread from oven and assemble with a slice of fresh tomato, a slice of fresh mozzarella, a piece of pancetta, and top with shredded parmesan.
Put back under the broiler until the cheese is melted and starts to turn a golden brown.
Remove from oven, top with fresh basil and enjoy!
