Caprese Toastie

10 MINS 


10 MINS


Serves 2-4

INGREDIENTS

8 slices of wholemeal bread
4 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
200g fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
Fresh basil leaves
4 tablespoons basil pesto
Olive oil, for brushing
Salt and black pepper, to taste

 


 

METHOD

1. Thinly slice the tomatoes and fresh mozzarella. Ensure that the basil leaves are clean and ready for use.

 

2. Lay out 4 slices of wholemeal bread. On each slice, layer tomato slices, mozzarella slices, and fresh basil leaves. Spread a generous tablespoon of basil pesto on the remaining 4 slices of bread and place them on top, creating 4 sandwiches.

 

3. Brush the outer sides of each sandwich with olive oil. This will help create a crispy and golden exterior.

 

4. Preheat a pan or sandwich press over medium heat. Once hot, place the assembled sandwiches into the pan or press. Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes on each side or until the bread is toasted, and the mozzarella has melted.

 

5. Season the hot Caprese toasties with a pinch of salt and black pepper to taste.

 

6. Remove the toasties from the pan or press, let them cool for a moment, and then cut each sandwich in half diagonally.

 

7. Serve the Caprese toasties immediately while they are warm and the mozzarella is gooey.

 



HANDY TIP

 

If using a sandwich press, make sure not to press too hard. A gentle press is sufficient to ensure the ingredients meld together without squeezing them out of the sandwich.

Add a balsamic glaze drizzle or reduction for extra flavour. You can either add it directly to the sandwich or serve it on the side for dipping.

Include a handful of baby spinach leaves for a nutritional boost and added freshness.
