Grilled Caprese Sandwich with Broiled Beefsteak Herbed Tomato’s
OH MY was this good!!!
Grilled Caprese Sandwich with Broiled Tomato’s
I decided to combine a few different recipe idea’s and come up with a new Sandwich which turned out to be a HUGE hit! I started surfing one of my favorite food blogs, The Noble Pig, and found this recipe http://noblepig.com/2011/05/21/basil-spaghetti-with-cheesy-broiled-tomatoes.aspx.
I have been craving anything Caprese lately since the Reluctant Entertainer featured on her Friday Roundup, on July 29th, the Caprese several different ways. One of the recipe’s featured was my Caprese Wrap!! http://reluctantentertainer.com/2011/07/re-friday-round-up-caprese-salad-served-many-ways/.
SO here is the new sandwich after I added the Balsamic and before the cut.
I started with 2 Beefsteak Tomato’s cut into thick slices (3 from each tomato), sprayed a sheet of foil on a cookie sheet, seasoned with salt, pepper and a little oregano. Then chopped a small amount of fresh mozzarella and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Popped them under the broiler for 3 minutes. Here they are sliced and seasoned
Sliced and Seasoned
For the each Sandwich:
Deli sliced bread of your choice
3 thin slices of Prosciutto
3 thin slices of Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
1 thin slice of Havarti Cheese
Heat non stick skillet to medium high, place the Mozzarella on one slice of bread and the Havarti on the other with the Prosciutto in the middle. Grill until cheese starts to melt and bread is lightly grilled. Then add:
3 Broiled Tomato’s from above
6 fresh Basil Leaves
Place back in the hot Skillet for a minute or 2 on each side to melt together.
Then plate the sandwich and open it up and lightly sprinkle with Balsamic Vinegar to your liking. Cut in half and enjoy!!
