Grilled Cheese Sandwich With Pesto & Tomato
I first tasted this sandwich at a cafe in Ramat Beit Shemesh. It was made with a regular or whole wheat sub roll, pesto, tomatoes and some kind of cheese. Unfortunately, it was taken off the menu after just a few months.
Here is my easy, homemade version of that yummy treat.
1 heaping tbsp ready-made pesto
1 slice meltable cheese (american, mozzarella, pizza cheese, etc)
1 small tomato, sliced
2 slices frozen bread (white or whole wheat)
Spread the butter over one side of the frozen bread (frozen bread is much easier to spread than defrosted bread).
Spread the other side of the bread with pesto and top with cheese and tomato slices.
Place in a high quality non-stick pan. Weight the sandwich down with a heavy pan lid.
Cook over medium heat, butter side down, till bread is dark brown.
Flip the sandwich over, and continue cooking till the second side is also brown and the cheese is fully melted. Serve immediately.
Makes one sandwich.
