  • 4 English muffins, split
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp fresh basil
  • 4 large tomatoes
  • 8 black olives
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 4 slices mozarella
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Toast muffin halves under broiler until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes, or in toaster. 
  • Mix garlic, butter, and basil together in a small bowl; spread butter mixture evenly onto each toasted muffin half.
  • Combine tomatoes, olives, and tomato paste in a large bowl; set aside. Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, and honey in a small bowl.
  •  Spoon some of the tomato mixture onto each muffin, then drizzle the olive oil mixture over the top, place a piece of mozzarella on top, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Return muffins to broiler; cook until the cheese has melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
