Tomato sandwich on a baguette…panini

Depending upon how large a section you slice for each portion, this sandwich can be for lunch or for dinner. We had it recently, on a surprisingly cold rainy summer evening. I heated them, but you can serve them warm or cool. Wrap them in foil to heat in the oven or on the grill and they become known as panini!

Tomato Sandwich on a Baguette

Baguettes, sliced lengthwise
Olive oil
Ripe tomatoes
Basil leaves
Soft mozzarella cheese
Salt and pepper

Drizzle each half of the bread with olive oil. Layer on tomato slices, basil leaves, and cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap each piece in some foil and either let it age for an hour on the counter or pop it in the oven or grill at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes.
