Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Sandwich


Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Sandwich

1 loaf of ciabatta bread (or any other bread to satisfy your needs)
2-3 tomatoes
fresh mozzarella
fresh basil
deli ham, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut the bread in half length wise and broil on high just until it starts to turn light brown.  Add mozzarella cheese to one half and layer the top with tomatoes.  On the other half, layer with sliced ham and fresh basil.  Add salt and pepper and put in the oven just until the mozzarella starts melting and bubbles.  Combine the two halves and slice.

{cooks note}

I threw this sandwich together a few weeks ago after finding some seriously soft ciabatta bread at my local H.E.B.  Wow, it was really good.  I had all fresh ingredients for this, which I highly recommend.  I added some thinly sliced deli ham to satisfy my husbands need for meat on a sandwich.  We had previously had this pizza, so I was able to incorporate all of the ingredients again for another great meal a few days later.

I kept a few of the sandwiches open faced for a little variety.  Unfortunately, my children turned their noses at this and ate peanut butter and honey sandwiches.

I can't even imagine how much better this would taste with garden tomatoes.  Someday.
