Grilled tomato mozzarella sandwich recipe

This sandwich makes a delicious panini if you happen to have a panini press in your kitchen. It is most delicious when made with fresh heirloom tomatoes. I don't recommend making it during the cooler months when tomatoes are out of season.

  • Kosher salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)
  • 8 slices thinly sliced white bread
  • medium tomato, sliced 1/4 inch think (4 slices)
  • 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, sliced 1/4 inch thick (4 slices)
  • softened butter
Using a 2 or 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter, cut out rounds from the center of each slice of bread and cheese. Season tomatoes with salt and pepper. Preheat skillet on medium heat. Butter all 8 bread rounds and assemble sandwiches to contain 1 slice of cheese and tomato each. Cook over medium heat until bread is golden on both sides and cheese is soft but not melted. Each recipe makes 4 servings
