Grilled Caprese Sandwiches

Oh my heavens.  I woke up with just about every muscle in my body screaming at me today, because I moved into my new loft yesterday!!!  :)

So happy!  Yet SO pooped.  And dreading my overflowing inbox that I’ve been avoiding for two days.  However, I’m inching back to blogland and will be back to answering comments and such soon!

In the meantime, I’m excited to share these cute little grilled caprese sandwiches with you!  In fact, I may make some today.  Why?  Because they require only a grill or grill pan to make.  (I think I can dig at least one pan out of my moving boxes!)  Because they feature some of my favorite fresh ingredients.  (Did I mention that I’m now living next door to KC’s largest farmer’s market?!)  And because they are my three favorite things — quick, easy and delicious.  That’s right.  I was in a food writing workshop last week where we were cautioned about overusing the word delicious.  But I will break the rules to tell you that these are in fact crazy DELICIOUS.  Check out the easy recipe here.

Have a great weekend, and look forward to getting back in the game next week!

    I commend you for getting a recipe post up during a move! We moved a few months ago and the before and after are so stressful! Congratulations and this looks awesome.

    Congraaats on the move! SO fun walking with you this morning. I’ve been sleeping all day since. I dunno, I guess having quarts of blood removed from my body sort a did me in. :)

    These look awerrrrsome.

    Haha, I totally overuse the word delicious. It’s just so…fitting :) Love these, and I’m so jealous you’re right next to the Farmer’s Market, congrats on the move!!

    How exciting for your new place! But moving is definitely something to wear you out. These look so tasty. The cheese grilled like that reminds me of the amazing grilled cheese we ate in Brazil. They are gorgeous!

    These look great! I love the flavors of caprese.

    Congratulations on your new place! I hope you had lots of help. Moving, along with going to the gynecologist, are my least favorite things EVER. These look great and the chive tie thing is a really nice touch!

    Congrats on the move! Caprese is one of my favorites. These are adorable!

    I’m all for using the word delicious, and think that it’s ridiculous that people are saying not to use it. Because these sandwiches look DELICIOUS!!

    Hi Ali,
    Just found your blog through google and I’m planning to make a lot of those delicious recipes.
    Too bad those biscuits are not in our stores (in the Netherlands) and I’m wondering if you have an easy recipe to make them?
