Caprese Style Prime Rib Sandwich

I was looking for a new spin on a leftover prime rib sandwich.  I was thinking my usual caramelized onion, cheddar cheese, and horsey sauce on crusty roll creation.  But, as I was walking through the store, I saw some stem tomatoes that looked fairly decent.  I started thinking caprese style.

After grabbing the tomatoes, I detoured to the bakery and grabbed some crusty bolillo style rolls.  Then, off to the deli for a fresh mozzarella ball.  After checking out, I rushed home to put together my creation.

Here is how these tasty creations were built.

I sliced the roll lengthwise, then layered with:

Thinly sliced prime rib
Thinly sliced red onion
Thinly sliced tomato
Thinly sliced fresh mozzarella

I then lightly drizzled the top of the roll with Italian dressing.  The sandwiches then went onto a cookie sheet an under the broiler until the cheese was starting to bubble and brown.

These little caprese style subs were great.  Crispy and crunchy with browned mozzarella cheese and a nice bite from the dressing.  This creation is headed to the repeat list for sure.

Thanks for stopping by,

    1. You can't ever go wrong with prime rib. We need to invent a way to make it the price ground meat...
