grilled caprese sandwich

Tomato + basil = an amazing flavor combination. 
Add cheese & smush it in a panini press? Well, that right there is a seriously delicious sandwich.

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1/2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella style cheese
  • a healthy pinch of salt & pepper
  • a big dash Italian seasoning

1. While your skillet or panini press is heating up, slice up the tomato & measure out the other ingredients
2. Lightly drizzle the balsamic vinegar onto one piece of bread & the olive oil onto the other
3. Layer the basil leaves on top of one slice of bread and top it with the tomato, cheese, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning & finally the other piece of bread
4. Place the assembled sandwich into your hot skillet or panini press & cook until the cheese is nice & melty & the bread perfectly golden brown- bon appetit :)
