Ingredients

  • 1 loaf thinly sliced white sandwich bread (32 pieces), preferably Pullman
  • 2 pounds salted fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 4 medium tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Using a 2- or 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter (depending on size of tomatoes), cut out bread and mozzarella.

  2. Step 2

    Season tomatoes with salt and pepper. Sandwich 1 tomato slice and 1 mozzarella slice between 2 slices of bread. Repeat with remaining tomatoes, mozzarella, and bread to make 16 sandwiches.

  3. Step 3

    Preheat a grill to medium, or heat a grill pan over medium heat. Brush outsides of bread with butter. Grill sandwiches until golden brown and mozzarella is soft but not completely melted, about 5 minutes per side.
