Festive Mozzarella Tomato Basil Bites

I am home for the holidays and I am right in the kitchen like I should be! I love helping out with all of the holiday dishes and preparing for the Sloan's Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners! To make things easier for my parents (who have been cooking up a storm all day!) I made these easy and festive appetizers for everyone to munch on while dinner is cooking. If you ever need a quick and simple appetizer that packs great flavor, these Mozzarella Tomato Basil Bites are right for you! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!!

  • 8 ounces grape tomatoes
  • 1 bunch basil
  • 6 mozzarella string cheese, cut in cubes
