Summer Menu Spotlight: Fresh Mozzarella and Pesto Sandwich

This week’s Summer Menu Spotlight shines on a lovely, light sandwich that is vegetarian friends but can also be modified to satisfy even the most discerning omnivore. It’s the Mozzarella Pesto Sandwich and it is our “Grilled Cheese” for the summer. When we removed the Chipotle Grilled Cheese from our 24 hour menu we decided that we would present a seasonal twist on the classic grilled cheese. For summer, we wanted a Grilled Cheese sandwich that wasn’t as heavy, what better than fresh mozzarella?
The bread is an herbed, grilled Ciabatta bread from our friends over at New World Bakery in Kyle. We spread our wonderful basil pesto on the bread once it’s grilled to perfect. Next we top the sandwich with caramelized onions and fresh tomato. The final touch is a generous portion of fresh mozzarella. You choose what you’d like on the side but we think soup is always the perfect side-item for a Grilled Cheese. Enjoy!
