I love these decadent little sandwiches! I have made this same recipe several times after seeing it demonstrated on the Nigella Bites tv show. On the show, she uses fresh mozzarella, which gets so soft and sweet when melted. Ooooh - this is truly comforting food. Very easy, although a little messy the first time around. Works best with ordinary sandwich bread - I sometimes stick on a slice of tomato and a couple of fresh basil leaves too. Yum yum!

This is yummy! I sometimes use whole wheat bread and it works fine too. You can also add tomato slices to the mozarella filling!

This recipe didn't work. Maybe I did something wrong, but I ended up wasting a loaf of bread and 2 packages of cheese. I will not try this one again.

I was really surprised by how good this is! For the record, I used whole wheat bread and it sealed pretty easily (so that's a healthier option) and I used only enough oil to prevent sticking. So that made it a little healthier and probably JUST as good.

I just had this for lunch today and it was SO good. I used fresh mozzarella from an Italian deli and it got so creamy while the outside is golden and crisp. For something so simple, it really tastes great. I used Pepperidge Farm sandwich bread. Thanks Mirj!
