BLT Caprese Sliders With Puff Pastry Buns
2 sheets Puff Pastry
3 tbs butter, melted
1/2 tsp course Kosher salt
5-6 Roma Tomatoes
2 tbs Pesto Sauce
20 spinach leaves
4 balls Fresh Mozzarella, Bocconcini size
10 slices of bacon, cooked and cut in half
Preheat oven to 350.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out one sheet of puff pastry to approximately 14.5 inches by 16.5 inches. Using a 3 inch biscuit cutter, cut out 20 circles. Repeat for the second puff pastry sheet.
Brush each puff pastry round with melted butter and sprinkle lightly with salt. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and transfer the circles to the baking sheet(s), butter side up.
Bake for 16-19 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
While those are baking, prepare your ingredients.
Cut each Mozzarella ball into 5 slices, set side.
Cut the off the stem end of the tomato, as well as the opposite, pointed end of the tomato. Cut the remaining tomato into ¼ inch slices. You will need 20 slices.
Once the puff pastry has cooled, assemble to sliders:
Take one puff pastry round, spread with about ¼ tsp of pesto sauce. Top with a tomato slice, then a spinach leave, then mozzarella slice, then slice of bacon and top the entire thing with another puff pastry round. Secure with a 3.5 inch skewer, if desired.
