Caprese Melts

James Carrier

Ingredients

  • 6 slices buttermilk or sourdough sandwich bread
  • About 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 15 fresh basil leaves, rinsed
  • 2 firm-ripe tomatoes (about 8 oz. total), sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

1. Brush one side of each bread slice with olive oil. Place 3 slices, oil side down, on a 10- by 15-inch baking sheet and layer evenly with basil leaves, tomato slices, and mozzarella slices. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and top with remaining bread slices, oil side up.
2. Broil sandwiches 6 inches from heat, turning once, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes total. Serve immediately.
