Caprese Sandwich with Mozzarella and Basil

On with 0 Comment
This easy-to make Italian sandwich is perfect for breakfast or for consuming as a tea-time snack. In case, you're looking for authentic taste, there's no substitute for all the ingredients used in this recipe. My kids love this sandwich too much and even want it in their lunch boxes. It goes very well with fresh orange juice and flavored potato chips or crackles. If required, you can reduce the amount of cheese and balsamic vinegar in this recipe to make it bit mild. Although I've always advised experimenting with recipes, which can be done with this sandwich too, but I'll ask you to go ahead with the original version. So let's make this scrumptious sandwich that's rich in protein, minerals and fiber.
