Grilled Cheese Caprese with Balsamic Syrup Drizzle

This is what happens when a simple grilled cheese sandwich grows up and learns the art of self-expression. The deep, rich umami (savory) flavor of the roast tomato provide the perfect foil for the creamy, rich cheese and the surprising tangy sweetness of the balsamic syrup.

Ingredients

Recipe Details

  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Course:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Brush the tomato slices with the oil and arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast the tomatoes until they are very soft and just hold their shape, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the vinegar and sugar in a 1.5-quart saucepan. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Simmer until the liquid is reduced to a syrupy consistency, about 10-12 minutes.
  4. Place 4 slices of the bread on a work surface. Top each with 2 ounces of the mozzarella. Place 2 tomato slices on top, then 4 basil leaves, followed by 2 slices of provolone cheese. Place the remaining slice of bread on each sandwich.
  5. Spread the outside of each sandwich with 2 teaspoons of the butter. Heat a large 12.5-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add 2 sandwiches, cover the pan with a lid or large piece of aluminum foil. Cook until the sandwiches are golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 3-4 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining sandwiches. To serve, cut each sandwich in half diagonally and drizzle with balsamic syrup.
