sliced fresh mozzarella

Quick butter tomato jam

  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons butter divided
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper

  1. place cherry tomatoes into a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. 
  2. once they start to get a little charred on the outside drop in 1 tablespoons of the butter and stir
  3. reduce heat and mash up the tomatoes with a spoon or potato masher
  4. add garlic, balsamic and the remaining tablespoon of butter, stir and simmer until thick like jam

Now it is time to build your sandwich

  2. butter the outsides of the bread
  3. drop some butter into a skillet over medium heat and put the sandwich in the pan and cover
