Balsamic Roasted Tomato Caprese Sandwich

Balsamic Roasted Tomato Caprese Sandwich

As I was enjoying my balsamic roasted Tomato caprese salad a thought crossed my mind; This flavour combination would be great in a sandwich! I am currently hooked on balsamic roasted tomatoes and I could not resist indulging and making them again, this time in sandwich form. :) As good as the salad version was, the sandwich was even better! There is just something amazing about wrapping things in a soft and warm fresh baguette and it really worked with this sandwich. I mean, just look at all of those juices pouring out of that sandwich! And even better, those juices soaked into the baguette infusing it with all of their magical flavours.

Oooh - I do so love roasted tomatoes! I love the way it intensifies and sweetens the flavour. This is an inspired take on caprese - just a bity more filling than a salad would be. Yum!

Now this is what I am talking about! I make slow roasted tomatoes and then make these sandwiches on the weekends for the kids. So deliciously good!

The sandwich looks delicious! I still don't get why the mozarella we have here is yellow and most of the ones I see in foodblogs is white.

Roasting the tomatoes for caprese is a great idea.
