Caprese Avocado Toast
I love God & # 8217s way of gently reminding me what really matters in life.
It is not my ability to check off my never ending & # 8216to-do & # 8217 list. It is not the newest pair of shoes I bought to match that dress perfectly.
It is spending our Saturday at a fundraiser for a good family friends little boy that has cancer. It is making them meals and treats each week to make their life at home a bit easier, despite their up & # 8217s and downs of day to day life.
Seeing something like this shake a family so close to home really puts things into perspective. Life is short. And not guaranteed. A reminder not to overlook the joy in the small moments of life. Watching my son experience birds chirping for the first time. Hearing the engine roar as we start our boat for his first boat ride. Seeing the pride in his face as he shoots me a little grin when he pulls himself up on the stairs. A reminder to not overlook the joys as my son experiences life for the first time.
I never imagined the happiness a little one could bring. You hear everyone say much love and joy children bring into a parent & # 8217s life, but I never imagined someone so small could take up so much room in my heart. My heart was already full when he was born, but it just keeps growing with each passing day.
In efforts to make my life easier so I have more time for those little moments, effortless and nutritious snacks are essential. And should I mention it doesn & # 8217t require an oven or stove? Essential for when the heat really turns up here in the midwest.
Avocado toast is not a new kid to snack game but adding variety to it is. Another joy and spice of life, if you will. There are couple key components to creating a beautiful avocado toast. First is the base. The bread. The carbs! I am rather picky with my choice of breads. They must be whole grain, full of nutrition and a seeded variety gets brownie points! So when Pepperidge Farm® Harvest Blends bread debuted their line of whole grain breads, I jumped on board. They are filled with better for you grains, such as sunflower seeds, flax and sesame seeds. What surprised me the most was how fluffy the bread was, and remained upon toasting. I find so many whole grain breads become smushed or flat too quickly. Harvest Blends is the perfect base with its crunch and nuttiness for the creamy avocado that I load on top!
The avocado is obviously a key component to this snack. You can mash it up or keep it in slivers like I have done here. Whichever suits your fancy! Once you have those two parts nailed down, the fun with the toppings begin! Since my herbs in our backyard have really taken off, I have been finding ways to incorporate basil into almost every dish. No complaints here. I am a basil feen!
A bit of basil, dreamy and creamy mozzarella then all drizzled with a heavy hand of balsamic drizzle makes this Caprese Avocado Toast hard to turn down.
Just as I try not to pass on the little joys in life, I definitely don & # 8217t pass on the joys of delicious snacking!

I love making crostini for the holidays, and basically any gathering regardless of the season. It & # 8217s such an easy, accessible little appetizer that everyone always likes, and you can always toast the bread in advance and give it a quick refresh in the oven at the last minute.
For this recipe, you can take the prep even further & # 8211 have your mozzarella and tomatoes already sliced in advance, and all you have to do is a quick stack before toasting it in the oven.
So many people love the taste of a Caprese salad & # 8211 myself included! & # 8211 and this is a fun way to reimagine the beloved flavors. Crispy crostini, tomato, gooey cheese, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper & # 8211 it & # 8217s simplicity at its finest, and everyone always loves it!
Bruschetta Caprese is a summer appetizer made with a slice of lightly toasted bread, fresh ripe tomatoes, basil, and good quality mozzarella tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette. It & # 8217s is a simple appetizer that comes together in minutes and is always a crowd favorite!
Caprese bruschetta is made with a thick slice of french bread that has been lightly toasted with a bit of olive oil, until beautifully crisp. It is then topped with a Caprese salad topping of juicy ripe tomatoes, fresh basil, and soft mozzarella that has been tossed in a balsamic dressing. You could even finish it with a drizzle of balsamic glaze to really put it over the top!
Let me tell you when those juices drip down into that toasted bread, all of that flavor gets absorbed, and biting into both a crispy yet tender bite of flavor explosion, well, it is just something you & # 8217ll have to try for yourself!
Despite how amazing it is and how complex the flavors are, it couldn't be more simple to make. So easy, in fact, you could make the topping the night before, and assemble it just before serving. It & # 8217s is a simple way to serve a crowd and is one of the BEST appetizers around. Save some topping for later because it can be used in salads, sandwiches, and pasta!
To construct your caprese toast, spread a layer of the ricotta-basil over the top of the untoasted side of bread.
Add a slice of mozzarella cheese over the spread.
Now spoon the delicious tomato mixture over the mozzarella.
Pop them in the toaster oven for about 10 minutes or until the mozzarella cheese has melted.
It's okay if the tomatoes roll off the toasts. They'll still roast up nicely and then you can just spoon them over each piece of toast after they've toasted.
As you can see, these caprese appetizers are super easy to make.
They are made with healthy ingredients and make a great little meal for yourself or to share.

How to prepare the toast with mozzarella and tomatoes
There are only a few steps you need to take so that you can enjoy your delicious Caprese toast. Start by turning on the stove at 400 degrees so that it preheats well. It is one of the key to success in any recipe that involves baking.
To prepare the beautifully delicious toast, wash the cherry tomatoes, then slice them not too thinly. If the mozzarella isn’t yet shredded, use a grater to manually obtain the needed result. Also, in case you want your toast with more character, mix the tomato sauce with a bit of chilly sauce. If not, just set it next to you on your working surface.
how to make mozzarella tomato toast & # 8211 caprese toast
Arrange 4 slices of toast, spread one tablespoon of tomato sauce on each of the slices. Then generously sprinkle 2 tablespoons of grated mozzarella over the sauce. Top everything with slices of tomato and season with salt.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place the freshly prepared toasts carefully on the tray and shove in the preheated oven. Now bake at 200 degrees for 5 minutes or until the mozzarella becomes light-brown on top. When ready, take out the oven and let rest for 5 more minutes so that you don’t get burnt. Remember to sprinkle some chives or shredded basil leaves.
Pesto Caprese Toast
Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Pepperidge Farm in conjunction with Blog Meets Brand and I have been compensated for my participation. All opinions are still my own.
It & # 8217s that time of year where dishes start turning from heavy, comfort food to lighter options. You want to ditch the oven, and go for something lighter, but still satisfying. You also want to spend as little time as possible in the kitchen so you can take maximum advantage of the beautiful weather!
This pesto caprese toast is the answer. Light and satisfying (and almost no time spent in the kitchen!)!
The base of this toast is a slice of Pepperidge Farm® Harvest Blends bread (which you can find at your local Midwest grocery!), Specifically, their new Seeded Grain variety. I love the nutty, hearty flavor of this bread along with the bit of a crunch from the seeds.
If you & # 8217re more of a fan of a smoother texture, you should give their Sprouted Grains variety a try. My husband isn & # 8217t a fan of & # 8220crunch & # 8221 in his bread, and he thought that the sprouted bread was just right!
Fresh tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella give you that light, summery combination while still being satisfying. Plus, it's super simple. Only six ingredients! And all you need is a toaster!
Just give your bread a quick toasting, spread on the pesto, layer on the tomato and mozzarella, sprinkle on the torn basil, and drizzle on some balsamic vinegar. That & # 8217s it!
Then head outside and take advantage of the beautiful weather! (Especially right now while it isn't super hot and the mosquitoes aren't out in full force!)
Few notes on making this pesto Caprese toast:
Bread & ndash Country, Italian, French, Ciabatta, sour dough are all good options or just buttermilk sandwich bread. Aren't we baking a lot of sourdough now? Just add tomato mozzarella pesto to it and you have a great lunch.
Tomato & ndash Heirloom / beef steak tomatoes are great. Make sure the tomato is absolutely ripe and juicy (not squishy).
Mozzarella & ndash I went for a good 1/4-inch thick slice. It is absolutely delicious when combined with all other flavors.
Pesto & ndash I used jarred pesto. If you have lots of fresh basil that you want to use then check out this highly rated pesto recipe.
Season & ndash Season well with a good extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
This pesto caprese sandwich (open face) is best eaten hot. So, not a great option for school / work lunch. However, you can find a huge collection of lunch box ideas here.
Caprese Avocado Toast

It takes you only 10 minutes to make this toast. This would be the minimum amount to make any food at home, right?

When thinking of caprese, your memory-taster-maker often heads to summer salads.
