Pie Iron Caprese Sandwich

Pie irons are a traditional way of cooking over the campfire, this sandwich recipe brings the classic Caprese flavors of tomato, mozzarella, and basil.

This recipe is just for one person but you can make as many of these as you want. Perfect hand food to eat around the campo fire.

The recipe uses a balsamic glaze rather than vinegar so as to not make the bread soggy. If you only have access to the vinegar with care ic can be used.

Ingredients

butter

2 slices of bread

2 slices tomato

1 slice mozzarella

3 basil leaves

balsamic vinegar glaze

Equipment

square pie iron

Recipe Directions

  1. Butter both slices of bread then place butter side down (it is to touch the pie iron and toast the bread, not on the inside as is the case with a normal sandwich).

  2. Place on one slice of bread the tomato slices, the mozzarella cheese, and then the basil leaves. Drizzle with a little balsamic glaze.

  3. Place the second piece of bread on top, then place the sandwich in the pie iron.

  4. Place the pie iron over the campfire. To get the best result select a spot over the coals that isn’t too hot so that the cheese in the center has the time to melt without over-browning the bread. Turn after 3 minutes then cook the other side for 2 minutes. Serve while warm, if too hot the cheese could burn your mouth.

Tomato, mozzarella, and basil combine in this wonderful toasted caprese sandwich recipe. #bushcooking #pieiron #caprese
