I made a tray full of Oven Baked Caprese Toasties and it was gone in a flash. The idea was to freeze them individually so that the kids can make them as a lunchtime snack. There was none left to freeze.

The Oven Baked Caprese Toasties as just proof that simple flavors, done well, always work. In this case, good bread, cheese, sun-ripened tomatoes and fresh basil. A winning combination. These Caprese Bombs were delicious and so easy to make. A Caprese Salad is a classic not to be messed with….. well I did change it a little.

Why would you want to make toasties this way? Well, not everyone have a panini toaster and also you can make more than just two or four sandwiches. Of course you can play around with other fillings. Ham and cheese, Chicken and Mayonnaise, Beef and mustard – the possibilities are endless.

As with my pizza-making, I used a slate tile to press down the toasties and also to toast the sandwich from the top.
