Yummy Caprese inspired Sandwich


Have you ever took a bite of a sandwich and were like wow that was good? I like to get that feeling every time I eat one. Whenever I make a sandwich I put a lot of thought into it because it has to hit the spot. People tend to put whatever they find in their refrigerators into their sandwiches and settle for average. You know at Spoons and Stilettos we don't like average so today I will share with you a recipe for a great sandwich.  
Making a great sandwich involves taking into consideration the different textures and flavours of all the components. This is how I like to make a Caprese style sandwich .


Before you start layering the sandwich make sure you have all the ingredients ready. Good quality Mozzarella and tomato are very important so please buy the best you can.


Cut about 2 inches off the top of the bread and remove the insides until you have a bread bowl. Brush the inside of the loaf with olive oil and start layering. 


I started off with the roasted peppers followed by onions then basil.


Follow with a layer of Mozzarella cheese


Then tomato with freshly ground pepper, salt and olives.


Followed by turkey bacon


Repeat layers to fill the loaf


Cover with the top of the loaf.


Seal with cling wrap, put a heavy object on top of the sandwich  and stand for about 3 hours. 

Ingredients
1 large french boule or any round of bread
1 ball of good quality fresh Mozzarella cheese
2 large vine tomatoes sliced
1/2 red onion sliced thinly
8 pieces roasted red peppers
2 handfuls fresh basil 
4 strips of turkey bacon cooked
olive oil 
a handful of stuffed olives sliced
salt and freshly ground pepper 

Directions

  • Cut about 2 inches off the top of the bread and remove the dough until you have a bread bowl.
  • Brush the inside of the loaf with olive oil and start layering. 
  • You may layer it however you want however make sure you have different textures in each layer. I started with red peppers, onions, basil, tomato, olives then cheese and repeat layers again. 
  • Cover with the top of the loaf and and seal with cling wrap. 
  • Put something heavy over the sandwich like a pot and let sit for about 3 hours.
