Ingredients

  • 46 croissants, sliced in half, lengthwise

  • 8 mozzarella pearls or 2 large mozzarella balls, sliced
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 5 ounces (140g) sun-dried tomatoes, sliced into stripes

  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Black or white sesame, for sprinkling (optional)
