Brush each slice of the baguette with your favorite oil (olive oil or margarine) and toast.
Cut the mozzarella into pieces about the length of your pinky and wrap each piece with a slice of ham. Brushing on a little oil will add shine.
On each slice of baguette, layer a slice of tomato, a basil leaf, and the mozzarella wrapped in ham. Top with capers and parsley.
Story Behind this Recipe
I composed this recipe as finger food for dinner parties. Pairing wine with cheese in this easy to eat flavorful appetizer.
Prep ahead of time. Do step 2 and keep in a tupperware container. Keep olive oil seasoned with herbs, spices, or salt and pepper; it'll hold for a while. This goes great with a chilled dry white, medium body red, champagne, or aperitif.
