Tomato and Mozzarella Sandwich
4 slices Italian bread
1 garlic clove, cut in half
2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 large tomato slices
4 teaspoon shredded fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
Salt & pepper
2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
4 (1/2 ounce) slices mozzarella cheese
Preheat broiler. Toast bread under broiler for 30-60 seconds, or toast in
toaster. Rub top sides of each slice with cut garlic. Brush each slice with 1/2
teaspoon olive oil. Place a slice of tomato on each piece of garlic toast.
Sprinkle 1 teaspoon basil over each slice of tomato and season with salt and
pepper. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar over each sandwich. Top each
sandwich with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Set 4-6 inches from heat and broil
until cheese melts, 1-2 minutes.
