Caprese Grilled Cheese Ingredients:

  • 4 large slices of thick, yummy sourdough bread
  • 4 thick slices of fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 2 tablespoons butter 
  • Garlic Butter Tomato Sauce (ingredients follow)

Garlic Butter Tomato Sauce

      • 10 ounces fresh cherry tomatoes
      • 1 clove garlic, minced
      • 2 tablespoons butter 
      • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
      • salt and pepper

Loaded Caprese Grilled Cheese Instructions:

  1. Make the Garlic Butter Tomato Sauce. Pour the tomatoes into a dry nonstick skillet. Heat until they start to get just slightly charred on the outside. Reduce heat and add one tablespoons of butter and give it a stir (it will probably splatter). Press the tomatoes gently with the back of a wooden spoon to release their juices. Add balsamic, garlic, and one more tablespoon butter. Simmer all together until thick and yummy. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Assemble. Layer the pesto, cheese, and tomato sauce onto a slice of bread. Top with a slice of bread, spread with butter on the outside of the bread. (Repeat for second sandwich.)
  3. Pan-fry. Transfer your sandwich to a skillet over medium high heat. Cook until the cheese is melted, flipping once or twice to get both sides browned.
