  • Grilled caprese sandwich stuffed with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil pesto!

    One of my all time favorite sandwiches is a grilled caprese sandwich. I’ve been making them for years and then one day I had one at a local restaurant that put pesto inside. My mind was blown! My all time favorite sandwich just got even better! Seriously, it is so good. Plus it is super easy to make. Takes 10 minutes or less. Can’t beat that! ;)

    I usually pick up a loaf of sliced sour dough bread from a local bakery and it makes this grilled caprese sandwich taste like it came straight from the deli!
