Pesto Tomato Melts

These sandwiches were just wonderful.  Close your eyes and "MMM!" good.  We all really enjoyed them! And they were super simple to make.  We used a sunflower bread because we all enjoy a hearty bread with some crunch.  But they would be fabulous on any kind of bread.  So go on and make them!  You won't be sorry!

made 4 sandwiches

  • 1/2 cup pesto
  • 8 oz. sliced mozzerella cheese (we used fresh)
  • 2 vine-ripened tomatoes
  • 8 slices bread
  • 2 TBSP butter

Warm griddle pan on medium heat.  Butter one side of each piece of bread.  On the other side spread pesto on each slice.  Slice tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.  Place on 4 slices of bread.  Place sliced cheese on top and top with other bread, butter side out (obviously, we are making glorified grilled cheese here people!).  Place on hot griddle and let sit until nice deep golden brown.  Turn over.  If the cheese oozes out, don't worry about it.  It just makes it that much better, I assure you.  Cook until golden brown on both sides, cut and enjoy!
