The Ultimate Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The Ultimate Caprese Grilled Cheese SandwichI love Cabot cheese. I think you KNOW that I love Cabot cheese.

As a member of their “Cheese Board” (get it?) I get regular deliveries of cheesy goodies on my doorstep. Which, let’s face it, is pretty freakin’ awesome.

Recently, this box from Heaven contained a cheese I hadn’t tried before. A “Tomato-Basil” Cheddar.

Now, another thing I love is all things caprese (tomato/mozzarella/basil), so when I saw this lovely block of white cheddar labeled “Tomato-Basil”, it didn’t event require a second thought…

What could possible be better for the Ultimate Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich?

Yeah, it rocked.

Oh, and if you can find this “Everything” Italian bread…it was amazing!

Top both pieces with remaining bread, flip and grill until cheese has melted.

DO NOT cover the pan with a lid to melt cheese, it will make your bread soggy!
