Caprese Grilled Cheese

For me, a grilled cheese is in my top ten list of comfort foods.  But sometimes just cheese & bread
won't cut it, so I have to mix things up a bit.  One of my favorite kinds of grilled cheese is a Caprese grilled cheese, made up of mozzarella, tomatoes and basil.  It's delicious.  This is no ho-hum grilled cheese ~ it's the best grilled cheese that summer has to offer!  Grab yourself some fresh tomatoes and fresh basil and you have the perfect grilled cheese.

2 Slices of Bread (I like to use sourdough bread)
Mozzarella cheese (can be slices or shredded works too)
A tomato, sliced thin
Fresh basil, chopped up (I use my kitchen scissors to cut it up)

Spread butter lightly on one side of each piece of bread.  Heat skillet over medium-high heat.  Place bread (butter side down) on the skillet, top with cheese, tomatoes, basil, a bit more cheese, and then the second slice of bread (butter on the outside).  Cook over medium high heat, until each side is golden brown...turning halfway through.  Then enjoy!
