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?
