Let’s take a favorite classic comfort food, “The Grilled Cheese”, and switch it up a bit.
For each sandwich:
2 slices of whole grain bread
3-4 slices fresh tomato
4 slices of Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
4 Fresh Basil Leaves
Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat a griddle or frying pan. As the griddle is heating, brush one side of each slice of bread with olive oil. Lay one slice of bread on griddle olive oil side down on pan. Add two slices of fresh mozzarella cheese on top of the bread. Layer the tomato slices and fresh basil leaves, sprinkling with salt and pepper to taste. Add the remaining cheese slices, and top with the second slice of bread (olive oil side up). Cover the sandwich with a small lid, steaming the cheese. As the bottom (pan side) becomes golden brown, carefully flip the sandwich to brown the other side, still covering with a lid. When golden brown on each side, remove from pan and cut in half or into triangles.
Great for lunch or an after-school snack. Add a salad for a fast and light dinner.
