Warm Orange Olive Crostini
Ingredients
2 ciabatta rolls (from our Bakery)
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 heaping cup Mezzetta Pitted Bistro Blend Olives drained and coarsely chopped
2 tbsp. orange marmalade
2 tbsp. cider vinegar
1 clove garlic minced
8 oz. fresh mozzarella* thinly sliced
1 tbsp. fresh rosemary snipped
orange zest Finely grated
Directions

Toasts and toppings may both be prepared ahead of time. Warm both before assembling crostini at the last minute.
Prep: 20 minutes Cook: 10 minutes Serves: 8

1. Preheat oven to 450°F and line a large baking sheet with foil.
2. Cut each roll into 12 thin slices. Brush on both sides with olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Cook for 10 minutes or until golden brown; remove from oven and immediately top with equal amounts of cheese, breaking into pieces to fit. Set aside.
3. While bread is toasting, stir together olives, marmalade,
vinegar and garlic in a small bowl; microwave on HIGH for
30 seconds to warm.
4. Spoon olive mixture over cheese and sprinkle with rosemary and orange zest.
*Only use fresh mozzarella. Traditional mozzarella does not have the creamy texture needed for this recipe.
