    2 lg tomatoes, sliced
    4 oz fresh mozzarella, sliced

Preheat broiler. Broil baguette cut side up 6" from heat for about 2 minutes, until the inside is lightly toeased. Rub each half with a half clove of garlic, the crusty bread will release the garlic's essential oils, giving you instant garlic bread.

Layer the bottom half fo the baguette alternating with slices of tomato, mozzarella and basil leaves. Season evenly with salt & pepper. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil then top with the other baguette half. Cut the whole sandwich into 4 pieces.

  • Love this sandwich, especially in the summer time! Can grill instead of broiling if you want. - 7/17/12
