Basil-Tomato Grilled Cheese - Some SERIOUS Goodness!

Although I'm not doing a recipe linky each Wednesday, I did want to share our recipe from this evening.    It was YUMMY!   And, it was EASY!      I hope you enjoy, because my family did!

Basil-Tomato Grilled Cheese

8 slices Italian bread (3/4 inch thick)
8 slices Mozzarella cheese
2 large plum tomatoes, sliced
2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

  1. On four slices of bread, layer cheese and tomatoes: sprinkle with the basil, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Top with remaining bread.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the oil, Parmesan cheese and garlic powder; brush over the outsides of each sandwich.
  3. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast sandwiches until golden brown on both sides and the cheese is melted.

If you have a picky eater, you can just make plain grilled cheese without a lot of extra effort.
