  • 1/4 cup melted butter (1/2 stick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1/3 cup grated Romano cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomato, soaked, drained
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Brush both sides of the bread slices with a mixture of butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until light brown.

Combine the mozzarella cheese, chopped tomato, Romano cheese, 1/4 cup olive oil, basil, sun-dried tomato, garlic and pepper in a bowl and mix well.

Spoon 1 tablespoon of the tomato mixture onto each bread slice. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese melts.
