Fresh pesto, creamy goat cheese, sautéed cherry tomatoes with garlic and balsamic vinegar reduction... need we say more? Your guests will thank you!
Preheat the oven to 350 ºF.
Heat a wide pan on medium high.
Pour in the olive oil and let it heat up a bit.
Add the cherry tomatoes and let cook for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the tomato skins start to shrivel. Make sure to stir the tomatoes every couple of minutes.
Lightly press each of the tomatoes with a wooden spoon until they start to break.
Add the salt, black pepper and white wine, and stir. Continue to cook for about 4 minutes or until the wine reduces a bit.
Set the tomatoes aside.
Place all the slices of bread on the baking sheet, with a little space between each slice.
Place the baking sheet in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 5 minutes or until the edges are a little crispy.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
Spread a layer of goat cheese over each of the slices.
Spread a thin layer of pesto over each of the slices.
Use a soup spoon to place 2 to 3 of the seared tomatoes over the pesto on each slice of bread.
Drizzle a little balsamic vinegar glaze over each piece of bread.
Add some of the shredded basil over each slice.
Serve right away. Enjoy!
