For a special grilled appetizer, try these melt-in-your mouth grilled tomatoes topped with melted fresh mozzarella.

Pesto sauce* (or use purchased pesto)

Preheat charcoal or gas grill. Brush both sides of each tomato slice lightly with olive oil. Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place tomato slices on a grill pan. Set mozzarella slices and bread slices aside.


In a small food processor combine pesto ingredients. Blend until basil is finely chopped. Set aside.


Place grill pan of tomatoes in grill. Grill for 1 - 2 minute and flip tomatoes. Top with cheese. Cover grill and cook until cheese begins to melt. Place a tomato slice with melted cheese on a quartered piece of toasted bread. Top with a dollop of pesto.

Garnish plate with fresh basil if desired.
