Caprese Bites


You say fresh mozzarella and I say, YES! Now take that fresh mozzarella and turn it in to Caprese Bites and I say the perfect party appetizer.

It also helps that nothing goes better together than tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil and olive oil.  The balsamic is a bonus ingredient.  If you put these ingredients together on pretty much anything the end result will be absolute deliciousness (is that even a word?).

Try making these for your next dinner party or family gathering and see if it’s the first appetizer devoured.  And when it is, please leave me a comment and tell me all about it…I’m that sure it will be the winner.



1- 8 oz pkg Bocconcini Fresh Mozzarella (about 24 per package)

Grape Tomatoes

12 Fresh Basil Leaves, rinsed


Olive Oil

Balsamic Glaze

Cut basil leaves and tomatoes in half.

Using a toothpick, stack one end of the tomato then a basil leaf then a mozzarella ball then finish with the other end of the tomato.  It should look like a mozzarella sandwich using tomatoes in place of the bread and being held together by a toothpick.  Repeat with each tomato.

Arrange on a serving platter and drizzle with the balsamic glaze and olive oil. Serve.
