Our family recently went out to dinner at a nice Italian restaurant and my younger brother and mom wanted to order mozzarella caprese for an appetizer. They both loved it so I decided to make these for dinner one night. They take maybe 10 minutes prep time at most. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 24 tooth picks
  • a small spoon or something to scoop out the insides of the tomatoes and the mozzarella balls
  • fresh basil finely chopped or basil seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and scoop out the insides of the tomatoes with the small spoon or utensil. Once the tomatoes are fully scooped out either use your fingers or the small spoon and make small “balls” of mozzarella to put inside the tomatoes. Spear the tomatoes and mozzarella with the toothpicks and then dip them in the olive oil. Sprinkle some basil on top of tomatoes and serve!
