Ingredients

3 cups red and yellow cherry or grape tomatoes, sliced in half

1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs 

3 cloves garlic, minced 

1/4 cup olive oil 

1/2 baguette, sliced thinly on the bias 

Kosher salt and black pepper

Kosher salt and black pepper 

1 to 2 balls nice mozzarella (about 1 pound total), thinly sliced 

Smoked black sea salt, for garnish 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the tomatoes, breadcrumbs, garlic and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a bowl, and toss to coat. Spread on a sheet pan and bake until the tomatoes are softened and the breadcrumbs are toasted, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, brush the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil onto the baguette slices, sprinkle with some kosher salt and pepper and top each with a slice of mozzarella. Place on a sheet pan and toast in the oven until golden brown and the cheese is melted, about 8 minutes.
  4. Remove both the tomatoes and the bread from the oven and top each slice of cheesy bread with some tomatoes. Garnish with a sprinkle of smoked sea salt.
