Mozzarella Toasties

20 Feb

So after impulse buying mozzarella and then realising its too cold for salads just yet, what do you do with the mozzarella?! I had a few ideas but after a big lunch, this seemed like the best idea, these toasties are simple and very tasty, could almost say classic!

Ingredients: (this is enough for two sandwiches)
150g Pack of mozzarella
1 Tomato
4 Slices of bread
Salt
Pepper
Balsamic vinegar
Dried or fresh basil

Estimated time: 15 minutes

Directions:

Firstly turn on the sandwich toaster so it can heat up, if you don’t have one then you can use a grill, griddle, even a frying pan as you just need something flat and hot!!

While that is heating up cut the mozzarella into slices and place them on two slices of the bread. Do the same with the tomato and try to arrange the slices more in the middle as you don’t want the cheese to melt everywhere as its a pain to clean off!

With the balsamic vinegar I haven’t said an amount because to be honest it’s a hard thing to judge and also depends hugely on the person who is going to eat the toastie. I found it easier to pour a small amount of the vinegar into the lid and then carefully pour it over the mozzarella.

Sprinkle the sandwiches with a small bit of sat and pepper followed by the dry or fresh basil, if using fresh make sure you give it a rough chop before hand. Put the other slices of bread on top and place the sandwiches into the toaster. Leave these for a few minutes, depending how hot they get check them after 5 minutes to make sure that they aren’t burning! This is the same with toasting them under the grill, keep an eye on them.

Once ‘cooked’ or toasted to your liking carefully cut in half and serve 🙂
