    These are delicious snacks for a party or as a side for an Italian feast. If you prefer you can use slices of French bread instead of English muffins.

    Serves: 8 

    • 4 English muffins, split
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
    • 4 large fresh tomatoes, peeled and chopped
    • 8 black olives, pitted and halved
    • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • 4 slices mozzarella cheese, halved
    • 1 pinch salt and pepper to taste

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat the grill and set the oven rack about 15cm from the heat source. Toast muffin halves under grill until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Mix garlic, butter and basil together in a small bowl; spread butter mixture evenly onto each toasted muffin half.
    2. Combine tomatoes, olives and tomato paste in a large bowl; set aside. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and honey in a small bowl. Spoon some of the tomato mixture onto each muffin, drizzle the olive oil mixture over the top, place a piece of mozzarella on top of that and season with salt and pepper.
    3. Return muffins to grill; cook until the cheese has melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
