Caprese Grilled Cheese with Balsamic Basil Mayo

Fall is certainly here. We have that nice, crisp air and we spent our afternoon at a football game. Not to mention that there is a definite countdown on for Halloween. (That last one makes me both excited and nervous.)

When it comes to fall weather, there are two meals that stick out as staples around our house: soups and grilled cheese. Since I'm always up for trying something new (or even just experimenting with something tried and true) and because I know how much Collin loves caprese salad, I knew I had to try this Caprese Grilled Cheese with Balsamic Basil Mayo when I happened upon it.

It's relatively simple to make and doesn't require much in the way of ingredients.

What You'll Need:

8 slices of bread
8 oz. mozzarella, sliced or shredded
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 1/2 tbsp. butter
1/3 c. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

What You'll Do:

Preheat a griddle or skillet.

Combine the mayo, basil and balsamic vinegar.

Spread the mayo mixture on the bread. Add a slice of mozzarella and a couple of slices of tomato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste. Assemble each sandwich.

Butter the outsides of the sandwiches and grill for about 3 minutes on each side.

How much easier could it get?
