Ingredients

For the strawberries:

  • 1 lb. fresh strawberries hulled, and quartered if large, halved if small
  • 2-3 tablespoons granulated sugar*

For the crostini:

  • 4 ounces baguette sliced into (12) 1/2" slices on the bias
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cut into 12 slices
  • 12 large basil leaves plus more for garnish
  • balsamic glaze for garnish

Instructions 

Prepare the strawberries:

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the strawberries and sugar in a medium bowl, and stir until all of the strawberries are coated with the sugar. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet, spreading the berries out in a single layer. Roast for 15-20 minutes, checking for doneness after 10. When the strawberries are done, they will have broken down, a large amount of their juices will have been released, and it will be bubbling. If the juices are turning brown, remove from the oven to keep it from burning. Cool slightly, and transfer the strawberries to a bowl.
  • Leave the oven temperature at 400 degrees. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet. Brush with the olive oil and bake for 5-10 minutes until crisp and slightly golden brown. Remove from heat.
  • Place the basil leaves on each baguette slice, followed by the mozzarella cheese. Top with some roasted strawberries, a drizzle of balsamic glaze, if using, and garnish with freshly chopped basil. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • *If your strawberries are very sweet, 2 tablespoons of sugar should do the trick. If they're not, use 3 tablespoons.
  • Unused roasted strawberries can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for about a week.
