This grown-up grilled cheese is sure to please! The tomatoes will take a bit of time to roast, so plan ahead. This recipe is wonderful with tomato soup!
2 ( 10 oz) loaves French bread baguette
8 oz. fresh mozzarella
salt and pepper to taste
basil and oregano to taste
2 T. olive oil, divided
6- 8 Roma tomatoes, sliced
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray. Preheat oven to 350. Place tomatoes in a single layer on baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 T. olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast 50-60 minutes or until softened.
Bring vinegar to boil in a small pot. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid is reduced to about half.
Meanwhile, cut each baguette into 4 pieces and slice open. Brush one side of each bread piece with remaining 1 T. olive oil. Place cheese on the other side of the bread. Top cheese with roasted tomatoes.
Grill sandwiches on a grill pan or panini pan. Drizzle each panini with balsamic syrup.
