About

Toasted Caprese Sandwiches are tasty appetizer or a refreshing lunch!

Instructions

  • Set oven to 400 degrees F. Slice bread and place on sheet pan. Once heated, lightly toast for 5-6 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, wash all produce and slice Tomatoes and Mozzarella.
  • Remove bread from the oven and liberally butter all 12 pieces while the bread is warm. Add Salt and Pepper to taste.
  • Assemble sandwiches and serve immediately.

Optional: Add a small grilled chicken breast or baked ham to make it a meal. Consider super-stacking your Caprese sandwich by adding one additional piece of Mozzarella, Basil, Tomato, and Bread. Instead of toasting in the oven, you could choose to warm the bread on a grill.
