CAPRESE GRILLED CHEESE

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 thick slices of fresh bread (your choice, really)
  • 100g | 3.5 oz (or 8 thick slices) mozzarella cheese (about ½ an inch thick)
  • 2 ripe roma or vine ripened tomatoes, sliced
  • ¼ red onion, sliced thinly
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons garlic olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Layer 2 pieces of the bread with cheese slices, tomatoes, onion slices and chopped basil. Top both pieces with remaining bread, and brush over the outside of the sandwich with the garlic olive oil.
  2. Cook on a pre heated nonstick pan/skillet over low – medium heat sprayed with cooking oil (or a drizzle of olive oil) until brown and golden on both sides and cheese has melted. You can also cover the pan with a lid to ensure melty cheese.
  3. To serve, drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Enjoy!
