Recipe: Grilled Cheese Caprese

Another wonderful grilled cheese recipe…. Grilled Cheese Caprese… thick sliced Tuscan bread…. thick slices of fresh mozzarella… beefsteak tomato slices… and fresh basil leaves… all grilled to perfection… not your ordinary grilled cheese sandwich…


Use fresh mozzarella.. not the packaged stuff you find in the dairy aisle… fresh mozzarella is soft in texture and has a wonderful mild flavor.. once you’ve tasted it .. you will know there is no substitute for fresh when eating it with fresh tomatoes and basil.

Use a loaf of bread that is hearty … slice it yourself.. and fairly thick.

Try this with a nice glass of Chianti and you’ll think you’re in Italy!

Recipe: Grilled Cheese Caprese

All you need:

Large tomatoes
Fresh mozzarella
Fresh basil leaves
Olive oil
Butter or margarine

All you need to do:

Spread margarine on 1 side of each slice of bread.

Place 1 of the slices, margarine side down, layer the mozzarella slice, tomato and basil leaves on the dry side. Drizzle a little olive oil on top.

Place 1 of the slices, margarine side up, on top layers.

Place on a hot griddle.

When the bottom is golden in color, carefully flip it over and press it gently with a spatula.

Cook until the bottom is golden and cheese has melted… remove it from the griddle and allow it to set for 1-2 minutes. Cut it in half and serve.
