Favorite Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich – This rockin’ combo of mozzarella, fresh basil and tomatoes is my ultimate favorite grilled cheese. Try this easy recipe now with summer’s fresh produce. It’s amazing!
Mozzarella and fresh tomato slabbed between pieces of my favorite bread. Can lunch get any better than this? I dare not think so! I really miss this sandwich over the winter months when good fresh tomatoes are hard to come by. So I’m so grateful that summer is on its way and I’m bringing back this baby to the weekly menu over and over.
And can you believe my kids don’t like it? It just makes me so sad! They still don’t like tomatoes. We’ve been growing them fresh in our own garden for probably over 5 years. So you would think over time they would become accustomed to them but unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Tell me, do you have some great ideas that would get them to change their minds? I’m all ears if you do and I’ll owe you big time! Maybe in the form of tomatoes or other garden goodies. What do you say? Sound like a deal?
Grilled cheese is just staple classic for lunch. I have to admit though…when it comes to grilled cheese I’ve become a bit of a bread snob. I rarely want store bought sandwich bread for my cheesy goodness. I want some good homemade bread.
I also can’t resist a big ole bowl of delicious tomato soup. I have 2 here on the blog if you need a new one to try. This one is made with fresh tomatoes and is simply scrumptious. This other one is quick and makes use of canned tomatoes which are readily available.
