Directions

  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  2. Place cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir mozzarella cheese and mayonnaise into cream cheese; heat in microwave until mozzarella cheese is melted, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir basil, green onions, tomato, and garlic into cheese mixture; spread onto sourdough bread slices. Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet.
  4. Broil in the preheated oven until cheese is golden brown and bubbling, 3 to 10 minutes. Cool for 1 to 2 minutes before serving.

I scaled this down since I'm the only one eating it. I couldn't get my fresh mozzarella to melt with the cream cheese very well. For me this was a bit too cream cheesy and needed something - a pinch of salt maybe? I also toasted my bread a bit, I like it crunchy and the broiling process always leaves the bottom too soft.
