Mozzarella, Basil and Tomato Sandwiches

Mozzarella, Basil and Tomato Sandwiches

Apparently this little sandwich was quite the hit when I posted it the other night on my Insta stories. I got so many messages from people asking about it, telling me how good it looked and also asking if they could move in with me. :) I hated to inform those people that nightly dinners at our house aren’t always as pretty and usually involve chicken fingers or pizza. Which I ain’t mad at either though.

I started making this grilled goodness years ago and it’s one of my absolute favorites. Easy to throw together too which helps on those crazy weeknights.I mean, how good does that buttery toasted golden brown goodness look. Plus the crunch of the bread with the ooey goo of the mozzarella. I can’t. ugh, so good.

What do you think, are you into a little mozzarella, basil and tomato sandwich or are you sticking with regular grilled cheese?
