Ingredients

8 pieces sliced French or Italian baguette

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 avocado

9 ounces

3.5 ounces

1/2 cup basil leaves

2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F | 190°C. Arrange bread on a baking sheet, drizzle both sides with olive oil and bake for 15 - 20 minutes until golden, flipping toasts midway through to crisp all over. Rub the crostini with the cut side of the garlic while still warm and season with a little salt and pepper. Divide 1/4 cup of the basil leaves on each slice of bread (about 2-3 basil leaves per bread), then top each with the avocado slices, tomato halves and mozzarella (bocconcini). Season with salt and/or pepper to taste. Broil (or grill) for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese has started to melt through. Finely chop remaining basil leaves and sprinkle over the crostini. Drizzle with balsamic glaze to serve.
