I love hosting and cooking for my friends and family. No matter where I serve my guests, they always seem to like my kitchen the best. I served these special appetizers bites at my Mother's Day brunch. They are super easy to make and will leave your guests impressed. You can prepare a day or two before your event and just assemble the bites that day. I adapted this recipe from Southern Living.
1 16oz (1 lb) Trader Joe's All Natural Fresh Mozzarella Log, cut into 1 inch squares.
(I cut into 16 pieces, one per guest)
16 small sun dried tomatoes or slow roasted tomatoes
2-3 Tablespoons of Olive Oil (enough to coat each cube)
1 teaspoon of Archer Farms Grinder of Sea Salt & Garlic ( you can use garlic powder and salt)
1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon of dried basil
Freshly ground pepper
In a mixing bowl, mix olive oil and the next in 4 ingredients. Add cubes of mozzarella to seasoned mixture and coat the cubes evenly by gently stirring or tossing. Cover and refrigerate let the cheese marinate up to 24 hours. Place cheese cubes on serving plate. Top cubes with sun dried tomatoes and garnish with a rosemary stem, a piece of basil or you can just use a toothpick. Serve and enjoy!
