- Wildflower Bread Bakery Sourdough Bread (mmmm, the very best bread, but if you don't live here in AZ, any hearty sourdough bread will do)
- grape tomatoes
- goat cheese
- shredded mozzarella
Know what I did with it? Made a caprese (sort of) sandwich. One of my fave restaurants, The Living Room, makes an amazing pressed caprese sandwich. I figured I could try to mimic it even though I don't have a sandwich press and I didn't have fresh mozzarella.
I buttered one side of each slice of bread. On the other side I spread a heaping teaspoon of jarred pesto sauce (I happened to have Classico in the house because my basil plants all croaked over the summer.)
Took a couple of slices of soft goat cheese and crumbled them over the pesto on one slice of the bread. Then I filled in the empty spots with some shredded mozzarella.
I sliced about a handful of grape tomatoes in half and carefully placed these on the cheese.
Then I put the second slice of bread on top and placed the sandwich in a really hot grill pan (heated mine on 8 on my cooktop.) Because I needed it to look like a pressed sandwich, I flipped a dinner plate over the top of the sandwich and sat my tea kettle, half full of water, on top. Took about 4 minutes to toast the one side, I flipped the sandwich, and toasted the other side for about 2 minutes. But your timing may vary.
Voila! Yummy yummy yummy. I ate it with sea salt & cracked black pepper potato chips, because that's what the Living Room serves. Now where is that glass of Infamous Goose Sauvignon Blanc I usually have with it?
