this sounds really tasty i will definetly have to try it!!


I rarely say this about a sandwich, but this was awesome!  Five stars worth, baby!!  I used the Follow Your Heart mozzarella cheese and a big juicy heirloom tomato.  I pretty much followed the instructions except that I sliced the cheese thin instead of grating it and also added a layer of fresh basil leaves between the tomato slices and red onion.  Next time I make this I won't toast it in an oven.  It goes in open-faced so the onions and basil leaves dried out a bit.  I'm just going to do it in the skillet like a regular grilled sandwich and that should keep everything nice and moist on the inside! 

I strongly recommend adding the fresh basil leaves if you have them.  You could also spread the inside of the bread with vegan pesto.
