Tuscan Toast featuring Nature's Pride Bread

I created an incredible appetizer using Nature's Pride Bread as my base.   It's an incredible explosion of layered tastes in your mouth.  Try it today!

Tuscan Toast featuring Nature's Pride Bread

  • 4 slices Nature's Pride Nutty Oat Bread
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 4 T Mascarpone 
  • 2 T Capers
  • 4 T fresh Basil, chopped
  • Fresh Parmesan, grated
Directions:   Remove the crust from each piece of bread to form the best square you can.   Brush each piece of bread with olive oil on both side and saute in fry pan until browned on both sides.   Slice each piece of toasted bread diagonally to form triangles.

In a bowl, mash the capers flat then combine with the Mascarpone and stir to mix together.   Spread 1 -2 t of caper mixture onto each piece of toasted bread.   Top with fresh chopped basil and a healthy amount of freshly grated Parmesan and serve immediately.   Makes 8 servings.
