prep time: 5 mins
cook time: 10 mins
makes: 4 sandwiches

ingredients
100ml extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 red chilli, chopped
1 tspn sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
4 tomatoes, cut into 0.5 cm slices
8 large thick slices wholemeal or sour dough bread
75g fontina cheese, finely sliced
16 basil leaves, plus extra to serve
50 g butter

method
Place the olive oil, garlic, chilli, salt and pepper in a large shallow bowl and mix well. Add the sliced tomato and marinate for as long as possible, preferably 2 hours.

Brush one side of each slice of bread with the oil from the tomatoes. Place the cheese evenly on top of half the bread slices on the oiled sides. Top with basil leaves, tomatoes and a second slice of bread, oil side down.

Melt half the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat and add 2 sandwiches, and push down with an egg spatula. When golden, flip over and toast the other side until golden brown. Cook the remaining sandwiches in the same way.
