Caprese Grilled Cheese

1 Sandwich
10 min

Grilled cheese is such a tasty and filling recipe. Most people just make it by using a slice of American cheese between two pieces of white bread. You can still do that and it can still be delicious.

But, this caprese grilled cheese elevates that sandwich.

It uses sourdough bread (which either you or a friend started making during the pandemic and you or your friend is still making today). If you don't have homemade sourdough bread, that's fine. Store bought works.

Then, add the other elements of a caprese salad: mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, and basil (but, in this case, it's in the form of basil pesto).
