I made these last holiday season but found this photo the other day and decided to add to the blog.
These are a great addition to any holiday table and super easy to make. You can also use a good ole' sliced baguette instead of the cutouts.
Holiday Inspired Pesto, Sun Dried Tomatoes, and Mozzarella Cheese Bites
26 slices of bread (I used wheat bread)
1 clove garlic, cut in half
4-5 sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, chopped
Jar of store bought pesto (or certainly feel free to make your own, I was in a pinch for time!)
1-1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 375
Using a cookie cutter shape of your choice (I used stars and trees), cut out all of the shapes with the bread. Rub each slice of bread with the cut side of the garlic. Place bread on a cookie sheet and toast in the oven for 10 minutes or so until it is browned.
Once the bread is toasted, let cool. Spread some pesto on each slice of bread, top with cheese then sun dried tomatoes. Serve.
