Grilled Mozzarella Sandwich

 This delicious grilled mozzarella sandwich is perfect to make when you want something fresh with a gourmet quality, but don’t want to go to a restaurant. Homemade walnut pesto, fresh tomatoes and melted mozzarella make every bite full of flavor. Be sure to make a double batch of the pesto so you can whip up a tasty sandwich later on in the week.

Place the basil, garlic, walnuts and Parmesan cheese in the food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste, and blend. While the food processor is on, pour the olive oil slowly into the mixture in order to allow the olive oil to emulsify.

You will need some sourdough bread sliced about 1/2 inch thick, whole mozzarella cheese, the pesto you just successfully whipped up, along with large tomato slices and roasted red pepper.



Ingredients

For the Sandwich

4 slices sourdough bread

4 oz mozzarella cheese sliced

1 large tomato sliced

2 oz roasted red peppers jarred

For the Pesto

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves

2 cloves garlic peeled

2 tablespoons walnuts

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup olive oil


Instructions

To make the pesto, place the basil, garlic, walnuts and Parmesan cheese in the food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste, and blend. While the food processor is on, pour the olive oil slowly into the mixture in order to allow the olive oil to emulsify.

Spread the pesto equally on the 4 slices of bread and place the bread on the panini maker or in a toaster oven for 2 minutes.

Then place the mozzarella cheese, tomatoes and roasted red peppers on top of bread slices and allow the cheese to melt and the veggies to soften.

Once the cheese melts, close the sandwich, cut and serve immediately
