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.
Makes twenty-four appetizers.
Arrange the cheeses decoratively on a serving platter. Serve with assorted party crackers, breads, mustards and chutney.
To serve, slice a wedge out of the Brie cheese to "start." Cut a few slices of one type of the cheese. Have another type cut into cubes for variety. Remember to have a sharp cheese slicer available as well as a cocktail spreader for softer cheeses.
Makes twenty appetizers.
