Grilled Mozzarella and Tomato Skewers
20 mins (prep 10, cooking 10)
9 ingredients
4 servings
Created by Chef Richard Krause for "Chef on a Shoestring." The CBS Saturday Early Show challenge was to create a gourmet 3 course meal for 4 people for less than $20. I love the presentation of this, much more interesting than simple bruschetta. Cut the bread into about 3/4" thick rounds for this. The ingredients after the skewers is for the sauce. I've also made this without the bread before and served it over couscous as a main dish. BE VERY CAREFUL cooking these as you only want them lightly toasted. It literally takes seconds. If you leave them over the heat too long, the cheese will melt all over the place.
