Tomato Pesto Mozzarella Grilled Cheese

Fresh tomatoes sliced with melty mozzarella cheese and pesto sandwiched between two toasted slices of sourdough bread.

Ingredients: sourdough bread shredded or sliced mozzarella cheese pesto tomato mayonnaise (to spread on bread to help it toast)

The Steps

Step 1: Spread mayonnaise on one side of each slice of sourdough. On two of the halves, spread pesto.

Step 2: Place two of the halves in your hot cast iron skillet with the mayonnaise side facing down. Cook on medium heat. Add sliced tomatoes and sliced mozzarella.

Step 3: Add the other sourdough slices on top of the mozzarella cheese. Cook until the bottom bread slice is golden brown and then flip.

Step 4: Cook until the other half of the sandwich is golden brown and the cheese is melty. This will take about 3-5 minutes. Serve and enjoy.

Hint: if you are only cooking one sandwich at a time, an easy way to flip a sandwich like this is to scoop up your sandwich with your spatula and then flip the pan and put it on top of the sandwich. You then flip both the pan and the sandwich simultaneously. No mess and no sandwiches falling apart.
