Open-face Caprese Sandwiches

May 6, 2013
These Open-face Caprese Sandwiches are a refreshing snack you can enjoy cooking on the grill. Ripe, juicy tomatoes are the perfect foil to crunchy, grilled Italian bread and they are a breeze to make. Follow the simple recipe below and be prepared as your family requests it again and again. 5.6.13 - 2 Ingredients 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided 1 teaspoon minced garlic 8 slices (about 1/2 in. thick) crusty Italian bread 3 medium ripe tomatoes, sliced 1 pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced thinly 16 medium basil leaves 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar Sea salt freshly ground black pepper Preparation 1. Prepare a grill for medium heat (350° to 450°). Combine 1 tbsp. oil and the garlic and brush onto 1 side of bread. 2. Lay bread oiled side down on grill and cook until slightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Turn bread over, lay tomato slices on bread to fit, overlapping if needed, then lay cheese slices over tomatoes. Cover grill and cook until cheese starts to melt, about 4 minutes. 3. Transfer sandwiches to a platter. Put 2 basil leaves over each sandwich and drizzle with remaining 1 tbsp. oil and the vinegar. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. From Sunset July 2009
