How to prepare the recipe for ham and mozzarella baked croutons

  1. First, cut the mozzarella into slices and pat it with kitchen paper to remove some of the whey. In this way the croutons will remain crunchy.
  2. Then cut the bread into slices or use the bread and arrange them on a baking sheet. Grill them for 2-3 minutes , just long enough for them to become crunchy.
  3. Spread the mozzarella and chopped ham on your croutons with your hands (cubes are fine too) and put it back in the oven for another 2 minutes, just long enough for the mozzarella to melt. Serve them immediately when they are still hot.

You can also toast the bread in the toaster but to melt the mozzarella you will still have to use the oven. Instead of cooked ham you can then use raw ham or speck . In this case, add it last, after melting the mozzarella, to prevent it from drying out excessively with the heat.
