Leave a comment

Mozzarella Cream Dream Sandwich   Makes: 1 sandwich


2 tsp. Olive oil

2 (1/4″) slices of fresh mozzarella

2 slices of sourdough bread

1/4 tsp. Aleppo pepper**


Heat oil in a 10″ nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Place mozzarella between slices of bread, and add to skillet. Press sandwich with a spatula or plate and cook, adding more oil if needed and turning once, until golden brown and cheese is melted, 6–8 minutes. Sprinkle with pepper before serving.


*Inner Chef Note:  Aleppo Pepper:

A dark red, robust, sweet and sharp chili pepper from the Aleppo region of Syria, with moderate heat that doesn’t overpower its fruity flavor. With a high oil content, dried crushed aleppo pepper has a deliciously deep, aromatic flavor, with a bit more heat than paprika. It is delicious in chili, grilled chicken breast, steak or chops. Aleppo Pepper is attractive to sprinkle on potatoes, deviled eggs or chicken/tuna salads. In Syrian cuisine it is used for many dishes, especially soups, salads, and fish.

Substitutions: Ancho peppers OR 4 parts sweet paprika plus 1 part cayenne pepper.
