Caprese Grilled Cheese

Adapted from a recipe on Crimson Cravings

• 2 thick slices whole grain bread
• 2-3 slices plum tomato
• 4 sprigs basil
• 4 thin slices fresh mozzarella cheese
• Slices of avocado (optional)
• Liquid Gold UP medium/robust EVOO for brushing
• Liquid Gold Traditional Balsamic Vinegar for serving (I like to reduce the vinegar slightly and Drizzle)
1. Heat an electric skillet to 350 deg F, or warm a large skillet over medium high heat.
2. Put your two pieces of bread together and lightly brush only the outer layers with olive oil.
3. Then, place the brushed sides down and layer your mozzarella, tomato and basil on opposite sides of the bread.
4. Close the sandwich and place on the grill. Top with a piece of foil and heavy plate or bowl - this will create a panini effect and make the sandwich crispier.
5. Cook for 3-4 minutes on both sides, checking around the 2 minute mark to ensure it's not burning.
6. Cut in half and either serve with a dish of balsamic vinegar or drizzle over top.
