  • 2 dry pints Pure Flavor® Tiki Tomatoes
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 8 pieces of bread
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • Butter, for frying
  • Salt, to taste


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the tomatoes on the sheet. Roast for 15 minutes until the tomatoes are starting to burst.

Step 3

Place the tomatoes in a bowl and carefully mash with a potato masher to extract the juice. Strain the tomatoes completely and reserve the juice in a small bowl. Reserve the strained tomatoes and sprinkle them with kosher salt.

Step 4

Mix 1 tablespoon of the tomato juice into the mayonnaise until it has the consistency of a sauce.

Step 5

Spread each slice of bread with tomato mayo. Top with ¼ of the strained tomatoes, shredded mozzarella, and 2 basil leaves. Sprinkle with salt to taste and top with another slice of bread.

Step 6

Heat a grill pan to medium-high and brush it with butter. Cook the sandwiches until toasty and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
