Like most great ideas, this sandwich came to me while laying couch on an empty stomach. I wanted a grilled cheese but felt the need to change it up a bit. I knew using the leftover ingredients from the caprese salad I made the day before would work perfect. Instead of making it grilled cheese style I decided to get the cast iron skillet and cook it in the broiler. I also just called it “Mozzapep” because I didn’t know what else to call it…..any ideas???

Happy Eating

  1. 1Put cast iron skillet in the oven and turn up to broil and let heat for 5 mins
    Take 1 tablespoon of butter and set aside at room temperature.
  2. 2In a small bowl mix butter, garlic and oregano to make garlic butter. Sprinkle the butter mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. 3Spread butter mixture over one side of each piece of bread.
  4. 4Top piece of bread with butter side down with pepperoni, cheese, olives, tomato and basil. Top sandwich with slice of rye bread, butter side up.
  5. 5Remove cast iron skillet from oven and spray with cooking spray. Put sandwich on cast iron skillet and and return to oven on second to top shelf and cook until cheese is melted and bread slightly brown. You can also cook in a frying pan like a grilled cheese
