With the holidays in full swing, you may have a few parties you will be attending. I know I do! Our calendar is typically jam packed from November until the first of the year.
Parties, upon parties, and more parties. It is such a fun and festive time of year!

Have no fear! I am here to help with this amazing dish. It is quick, easy, and delicious. And, you probably have most of the ingredients on hand…bonus points!

So let’s grab our ingredients, get cooking, and help you to shine like the total superstar that you are at your next holiday party.
Full disclosure, in the whirlwind that is the holidays I have to confess I did not take a lot of pictures. While I was making these amazing Caprese Toast Points, I had my crazy pack of kiddos running throughout the kitchen doing what I am pretty sure was a reenactment of tag on steroids. I mean seriously y’all it was total crazy town! Full on screaming and running in circles literally around my legs…please tell me I’m not alone.
I promise, this recipe is super easy. If you have any questions please leave me a comment, and I will get right back with you. Enjoy! XO
Hearty loaf of French bread
Cracked Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 350. Place about a cup of balsamic vinegar into a small sauce pan. and heat on medium heat. Check back occasionally to stir. You want the balsamic to reduce into a syrup like consistency.
While the balsamic vinegar is reducing, slice your bread into the toast points. You will also need to slice your tomatoes, and chiffonade your basil.
Line your baking sheet, and place your toast points. Drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with oregano.
Top toast points with mozzarella and tomatoes. Place in oven, and cook for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is nice and toasty.
Top with basil, and drizzle on balsamic reduction.
Simple and delicious! I must admit I love making this for dinner with a simple salad. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
