Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Serves 4 - 6

To roast the tomatoes:

Preheat the oven to 450°F.

Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Add the herb sprigs to the pan and toss to coat them in the oil as well. Season with salt and pepper.

Roast until the tomatoes are blistering and beginning to burst open about 15 minutes.

To assemble the snack bites:

Layer the mozzarella and basil onto the flatbreads. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the top with balsamic if desired. Serve with warm roasted tomatoes.

Caprese Snack Bites pair wonderfully with red wine and are great as part of a personal snack board filled out with other items like pistachios, prunes, orange slices, and other cheeses like pesto Monterey Jack and other crackers.
