  • Slice the baguette in half lengthwise. Slather each half with some basil aioli, to taste. Sprinkle the top of each baguette half with some shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Place the baguette halves on a baking sheet then place under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, watching carefully, until cheese is melting and starting to turn golden brown.
