The countdown to the weekend is ON! And to celebrate, we wanted to share this yummy appetizer from our 2014 recipe contest- a submission from Lisa at Jersey Girl Cooks. This is the perfect appetizer to whip up for a dinner party…seriously, who doesn’t like fried cheese?! The key ingredient is our Saucy Mama Four Leaf Balsamic Vinaigrette and Marinade, of course! You’ll want to try this recipe, trust us.

Fried Mozzarella & Balsamic Heirloom Tomato Crostini
Serves: 6 to 12

Ingredients:

¼ cup olive oil, divided
12(1/2 inch) baguette slices (about half a loaf)
2 cups chopped Heirloom tomatoes
3 tablespoons fresh chopped basil
3 tablespoons Four Leaf Balsamic Vinaigrette and Marinade
1¼ cup Panko bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon salt, plus extra if needed
16 ounce fresh mozzarella log, cut into 12 thick pieces to fit the size of the bread
2 medium eggs, beaten

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400° F. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and brush both sides of the bread with 1 tablespoons oil. Reserve remaining oil. Bake until slightly golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. In a small bowl, mix together tomatoes, basil and dressing. Set aside.

Mix together bread crumbs, Italian seasoning and ½ teaspoon salt on a deep plate. Dip the cheese pieces in the egg and then dredge the cheese with the bread crumb mixture until all is coated.

Heat half of the olive oil on medium heat in a non- stick frying pan. Place half the cheese in the pan and fry for 30 to 45 seconds on each side or until golden. Remove from pan and let rest on paper towels. Cook the remaining batch.

To assemble crostini, place a piece of fried cheese on each piece of toasted bread. Top with the tomato mixture. Season with salt to taste.
