Quick No-Cook Breakfast Recipe: Caprese Toast

Blog, Recipes


We started our Virtual Cooking Camp (link to virtualcookingcamp.com) this week and the first breakfast in the “Mangia Italiano” theme was this easy recipe that makes a great breakfast or snack. No cooking is required! Just a bit of chopping…

Ok…to be honest it does involve “toasting” but when I say “cooking” I’m more referring to heating a pan on a stove or baking something in the oven.

Recipe: Caprese Toast:

Try out this new take out this gourmet breakfast with basil, fresh buffalo cheese, and lots of tomato on crispbread.

  • 8 slices of whole wheat bread (2 per person)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 cup buffalo or regular mozzarella cheese
