Caprese Grilled Cheese
Gooey mozzarella cheese, fresh cut tomatoes, basil leaves, and a balsamic, mayo! All grilled to perfection.
Run to your kitchen and make this right now!!! I will wait… Okay, take that first bite, and enter the land where you tastebuds die happy, where they will never want another bite of anything ever again because nothing will compare…ever!
Haha, okay, I may be setting your expectations a little high, but this sandwich is ridiculously good.
Do you love caprese? I do. I love all types of caprese. My hubby’s work used to make this one with mangos and a sweet chili sauce. I have been trying to duplicate it, and when I do, I will share.
On the 4th of July I like a strawberry, blueberry, and mozzarella caprese with balsamic reduction.
Basically, if it is called “caprese” it goes in my mouth.
Haha. I love cheese, tomatoes, basil, and balsamic. So when you combine them it is bliss. Add some bread. Some butter. Then grill it. And oh my gosh… Hello fat pants! Goodbye ambitions for a bikini body. Haha!
Okay, not true, but you guys, hurry and indulge in this because next week I am starting my “get your body summer ready” series with a cleanse, healthy recipes, and a lot less of these buttery, cheesy, carb filled recipes. Mmmmm.
Here’s the thing, this sandwich is not all bad. Fresh mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and fresh basil all rock. But in addition to that, I used a balsamic mayo.
That addition of balsamic mayo is fantastic. It tastes amazing and brings that Caprese idea full circle!
