Easy Entertaining: Mozzarella & Tomato Bites

While I certainly don't mind spending some time and effort cooking, sometimes it's nice to throw something together quickly.  This appetizer is so quick and easy but, thanks to a few flavors that marry together beautifully, it still tastes incredible!  The presentation is very cute and they can be eaten in one clean, easy bite, so no need for serving plates!  Feel free to prepare the tomato bites ahead of time and store them in the fridge.  Take them out 15 minutes before serving and dress them right as your guests arrive!

Mozzarella & Tomato Bites


8 cherry tomatoes, halved
8 mini mozzarella balls, halved
8 thing slices of proscuitto, halved lengthwise
16 basil leaves
extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
fresh black pepper


1.  Push tomato and mozzarella halves together to make a ball.  Tuck a basil leave against the ball as your wrap it with a slice of proscuitto. Secure with a toothpick.

2. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and drizzle with a good quality olive oil. 

Couldn't be easier!  They'll disappear in a matter of minutes!


  1. yum that is definitely something i would make for sure this summer!! love the addition of prosciutto.

  2. Not sure how picky of eaters your boys are but I would guess these would be very kid friendly as well!

  3. That looks right up my alley!

  4. How beautiful! Thanks for this - I'll be making these for my birthday cocktail party this Saturday!
