Grilled Caprese Sandwich

This may be my new favorite sandwich. 

Yum, Yum, Yum!

 Butter both sides of good bread. I’m using Italian, 

but sourdough would be good too. Grill in a pan

and flip when slightly toasted. 

 Spread with pesto. I whipped up a small batch 

using basil from my garden, parmesan cheese, 

a clove of garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. I just

 gave everything a quick zap in my mini 

food processor. You can also use my recipe

Not an accurate picture here.
What you want to do is add slices of mozzarella,
but I only had shredded today so that’s
what I used. Use this order

Grill another minute until the cheese is melty and 

the bread is a crunchy golden brown, 

flipping once.
