I just wanted something really light to make one day. This recipe was strictly for me because my husband is the typical "Where's the meat?" kind of guy. That said, he came home and I made it for him as a snack with the leftovers and he liked it a lot! I LOVE this recipe for Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Sandwiches. Although it's so simple it's almost not a recipe, I'll give credit where credit is do. It's amazing.(MY CHANGES ARE IN BOLD)
Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Sandwich
1 (1 pound) loaf Italian bread (I USED TOASTED FRENCH HAMBURGER BUNS)
6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 tomatoes, sliced
4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I OMITTED CUZ I'M A WUSS)
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1.Slice the loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Layer the basil, tomato slices, and mozzarella cheese between the two halves of bread. Cut into four sandwiches.
2.In a small dish, stir together the balsamic vinegar and red pepper flakes. Use as a dipping sauce. (I BRUSHED THE TOASTED BREAD WITH THE BALSAMIC VINEGAR WITH A LITTLE OLIVE OIL ADDED IT IT)
Here are the results:
This recipe goes down in my books as five stars!
