If you’ve never had a caprese sandwich you’re probably under the assumption that they’re can’t be anything special about tomatoes, bail and cheese. Well that assumption would be wrong. The combination does some pretty incredible things in your mouth and can be a really easy sandwich to make for a hungry group of folks when camping.
This is an especially good sandwich if you are feeding vegetarians. If not, it’s good enough they won’t even miss the meat. We love to make sandwiches that feed a whole group. Making individual sandwiches can get time consuming and messy. This caprese sandwich is so easy to make that you can easily assemble it at the campsite, throw it over the coals in tin foil and chow down.
Once you have assembled the sandwich, spray down some tin foil and wrap the french loaf tightly. Throw it in the coals of your fire and wait about 10 minutes. When the cheese is melted and the bread is crusty, you know it’s ready! This is a perfect lunch on a hot weekend camping, even the kids enjoyed it and that says a lot!
