Grilled Caprese Sandwich


It’s Monday morning. It’s also time for another installment of This Week’s Cravings.

Our theme this week is Cheese Lover Day: Cheese Recipes which made me excited because who doesn’t love cheese? Okay, I know some people don’t love cheese. But anyway. I do love cheese.

I am so proud to be co-hosting This Week’s Cravings along with Tina over at MOMS CRAZY COOKING, Angie from Big Bear’s Wife  & Kristi from Veggie Converter.

We host this party every Monday, so be sure to check out the upcoming themes at the bottom so you can join in too!

We are always looking for fun new ways to make Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. The same old, sometimes gets boring – and our favorite is the delicious Grilled Pizza Sandwich but we need something new. We decided that it might be kinda fun to turn a Cabrese Salad into a sandwich and so we set out to do and it turned out delicious.

Grilled Mozarella Basil Tomato Caprese Sandwich Recipe

Grilled Caprese Sandwich

1 tomato, sliced
fresh mozzarella, sliced about ¼ inch thick
Basil Pesto
Sea Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil

Take a small dish and pour some olive oil into it. Take a slice of bread, spread some pesto on it and set it into the dish, top it with a slice of tomato and sprinkle it with some sea salt and pepper. Now put a piece of Mozzarella on top of that. Take the 2nd slice of bread and smear it with some pesto and put it pesto side down on top of the Mozzarella.

Now flip the sandwich over in the olive oil, so both sides are coated with olive oil.

Now using a griddle or a pan on the stove, grill each side until golden brown and cheese appears melted. It took me about 2-3 minutes and then I flipped it for an additional 2-3 minutes. About 5-6 minutes total.

So delicious!

I'm sorry, I don't have the nutritional value on it. I just kinda put things together and see how they turn out, and I don't pay as much attn to the calorie/nutrition value as I probably should. I hope you will join in on our club! :) Your site looks good for just getting started though!
