I made these lovely little gems for lunch today. I added tomato and basil - as suggested by another reviewer. Delicious! Fresh mozzarella is a MUST for this wonderful and easy sandwich. I used my Foreman grill so brushed the grill with garlic butter. I will be making this often! Thanks Sam, great recipe!!! Made for PRMR Tag April 2009
I also agree that not using fresh mozzarella would diminish the quality of this sandwich but not make it horrible or anything gotta make due sometimes. I really really like making these now, I prefer them as stated dipped in some marinara sauce (too hard to get it in sandwich before cooking without making a mess) and I put deli pepperoni in for DBF. I make sure my sauce is well seasoned but plain I'd probably like some more seasonings like garlic on the bread.
Enjoyable sandwich! I used fresh mozzerella (assuming that was called for even though not specified). The quality of the cheese will govern the quality of the sandwich. Next time I may add a thin slice of tomato and fresh basil inside the sandwich.
