Mozzarella cheese, fire roasted red bell peppers enhanced by herb blend of Tuscan Style butter combine in an unforgettable sandwich.
4 slices Italian or sourdough bread
3 tablespoons Challenge Tuscan Style Spreadable Butter
4 slices (about 4 ounces) mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup prepared fire roasted red bell peppers, drained and sliced into narrow strips
Fresh basil leaves – (optional – use just a few to enhance without overpowering the sandwich)
Spread Tuscan Style butter lightly on one side of each bread slice. On 2 slices arrange half of the cheese, then red bell peppers, basil and remaining cheese. Top with remaining bread slices. Spread Tuscan style butter on the tops of the sandwiches.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Place sandwiches butter side down in the skillet and spread additional Tuscan style butter on the uncoated side. Cook until sandwiches approximately 4 minutes per side or until golden brown and the cheese is melted.
Yield: 2 sandwiches
*Slices of fresh tomato may be substituted for red bell peppers.
