Sopressata Mini Sandwiches

Ah, hot sopressata, fresh mozzarella, basil, perfectly crusted baguette, and cheap olive oil — what more could you possibly ask for? Not much. Note the use of unsalted mozzarella here, since the sopressata already contains plenty of salt.

8 mini sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 2 thick slices sopressata, quartered
  • Sixteen 1/4-inch-thick slices crusty baguette
  • Two 1/4-inch-thick slices unsalted fresh mozzarella, quartered
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil

Directions

For each mini sandwich, place 1 piece of sopressata on a slice of baguette, followed by a piece of mozzarella and a basil leaf. Brush the top and bottom slices of bread with the olive oil. Repeat until there are 8 sandwiches.

Heat a 10-inch or larger skillet over medium heat. When hot, add the sandwiches and toast until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Flip carefully and toast the other side. Serve.

Sandwich Shopping Tip

Look to the deli for cold-cuts and cheeses sliced to order; they'll taste fresher than their vacuum-sealed counterparts.

Sandwich Cooking Tip

For a more pronounced flavor, try drizzling your bread lightly with some olive oil and grilling it.
