{Oh So} Easy Italian Appetizer

Hey! I hope everyone is having a fab week! It's flying by here.
I just want to thank everyone who has been so kind to comment on my posts lately, I love reading them!
As I was loading these pictures for this post, it occured to me that I have been showing lots of recipes the past couple weeks. It's probably because cooking is something that pretty much has to be done daily whether I want to or not. So every now and then I try to get a little bit creative because I tend to fall into food ruts, and as much as I love cooking, I get tired of my own cooking, and bored. One of these days I'll show off some more crafts and organizing ;)

Today I have a simple, tasty appetizer that is a slight twist to the classic tomato basil bruschetta, because instead of bruschetta I used cresent roll dough.

Easy Italian Appetizer


fresh basil
red onion
roma tomatoe
mozzarella cheese (fresh would be delicious, but I didn't have any)
crescent rolls
balsamic vinegar

Unroll crescent rolls and flatten together on a baking sheet.
Thinly slice mozzarella and cover dough
slice Tomato, onions, and layer on top of cheese
top with basil and drizzle balsamic vinegar.

Bake @ 350 for approx 15-20 min, until crust is golden brown.

I topped mine with more fresh basil after it was done baking.
Cut into squares and serve on platter drizzles with more balsamic.

Enjoy :)
