Grilled Caprese Sandwiches

6 Aug


A yummy hybrid of grilled cheese, caprese salad and PESTO! Perfect for a quick dinner, lunch or even some days breakfast. There really aren’t any measurements for this as quantities will depend on the size of your bread and your personal preferences. Don’t be intimidated by how good this looks.


  • Pesto (your favorite recipe/brand – we usually use Classico)
  • Fresh Tomato, thinly sliced
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Bread (we like to use Italian or artisan bread)


1.) Slice up your bread, tomato and cheese. Spread pesto on two slices of bread. Lay cheese on top of pesto on both slices.

2.) The ideal way to cook these buddies is to use a toaster oven. If you don’t have a toaster oven, you can still join in the fun. Try using a frying pan with a cover on it to help melt the cheese. Toast your two slices of bread side by side, cheese facing up.

3.) When cheese looks hot and bubbly (roughly 5-7 minutes), remove one slice from toaster (for safety’s sake) and place tomato on it. Put it back in and toast for an additional 5 minutes or until sufficiently toasted.
