mangia mondays 11: smoked mozzarella grilled cheese

hiya, friends!
welcome to

my lovely friend lisa from shine your light
& i host this super-awesome blog hop.
we absolutely love seeing what everyone links up each week.

so, link up those recipes & food posts!

smoked mozzarella grilled cheese

{for 2 sandwiches}
4 slices of bread {we used 3-cheese semolina}
6 slices of fresh, smoked mozzarella
1 tomato cut into 6 slices
fresh basil leaves
thinly shaved asiago cheese

1. preheat skillet to medium heat.

2. butter 1 side of each slice of bread. top 2 slices with 3 pieces of mozzarella, 3 slices of tomato, 2-3 basil leaves, and a sprinkle of asiago. top with remaining 2 slices of bread, butter side up. :)

3. place sandwich in skillet & cook 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown & cheese starts to get gooey.

the smoked mozzarella MAKES this sandwich...
it's SO good.
if you wanted to add protein,
turkey or ham {maybe some prosciutto, even!}
would be delicious!
