Ciabatta bread topped with pesto, melted fontina cheese, sliced tomatoes, and fresh basil, simple yet delicious. This Tomato Basil Grilled Cheese Sandwich is a refreshing twist to the classic grilled cheese sandwich.
  • 2 slices of ciabatta bread (or bread of choice)
  • 4 tablespoons pesto
  • 2-3 oz fontina cheese, sliced (or mozzarella cheese)
  • Half a medium tomato, sliced
  • A small handful of basil leaves (8-10 large basil leaves)
  1. Spread pesto on both slices of bread. Place thinly sliced cheese on one slice of bread. Place sliced tomatoes and basil leaves on the other slice of bread. Put the two sides together and press the sandwich down.
  2. Grill or toast your sandwich until the bread turns crunchy and brown and the cheese has melted.
  3. Slice the sandwich in half, and serve the sandwich warm.
