Caprese Grilled Cheese

I'm sure someone has thought of this before, but I came up with it a while back when I wanted grilled cheese and had the stuff for a Caprese salad (mozzarella, tomatoes, basil and balsamic). So, why not??!! What came was a yummy, delicious sandwich!!!


You make it just like plain old grilled cheese. I suggest using Sourdough bread, butter it, then layer thin slices of mozzarella, bold flavored tomatoes (like from the vine), basil (I use freeze dried), a little salt & pepper, balsamic glaze (I used a thicker balsamic vinegar so it doesn't spread all over your pan...which it sizzles a lot when it hits that hot pan), then put one more layer of thin slices of mozzarella, and grill to perfection!

This would probably be good with some grilled chicken as well. There's not a whole lot of substance in this sandwich; it doesn't fill me up, but it is just oh so good! Would be great as an appetizer for a dinner party or finger food dish.
So yummy; enjoy :)
