Ahhh, the comfort of a hot Grilled Cheese. This takes me back to my younger years when Mom would make this for us kids, for a quick lunch or dinner. That crispy outside crust with that oozy gooey melted cheese. What kid or even adult could resist it.
I remember camping one year and for lunch, my Mom added a slice of tomato inside my sandwich. My first thought was oh no, it’s ruined. I have to admit, it became a favorite and I was certainly a fan.
For this recipe, I wanted to kick it up a notch. Besides, it’s what I do. My friend gave me some big, ripe red and yellow tomatoes. My decision…I am making a Caprese grilled cheese. How pretty they would look too if the center of the slice of tomato, was visible on the top. A heart shape cut out was necessary. Give this easy, light and delicious recipe a try. You will love how the sandwich pops with the nuttiness of the bread, basil pesto, and balsamic glaze.
Knife and fork, let’s eat!
