Balsamic Roasted Tomato Caprese Sandwich

As I was enjoying my balsamic roasted Tomato caprese salad a thought crossed my mind; This flavour combination would be great in a sandwich! I am currently hooked on balsamic roasted tomatoes and I could not resist indulging and making them again, this time in sandwich form. :) 

Balsamic Roasted Tomato Caprese Sandwich

As good as the salad version was, the sandwich was even better! There is just something amazing about wrapping things in a soft and warm fresh baguette and it really worked with this sandwich. I mean, just look at all of those juices pouring out of that sandwich! And even better, those juices soaked into the baguette infusing it with all of their magical flavours. 

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe field tomatoes (cut in half)
  • 2 cloves garlic (chopped)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 ball fresh mozzarella (sliced)
  • 1 handful basil leaves
  • 1 baguette (cut into 4 sandwich sized pieces and sliced in half)
Instructions

  1. Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet with the cut side facing up.
  2. Sprinkle with the garlic, salt and pepper and drizzle with the oil and vinegar.
  3. Roast the tomatoes in a preheated 350F/180C oven for an hour.
  4. Let the tomatoes cool, assemble the sandwich and and enjoy.
