Stuffed and topped with tomato and gooey cheese, then finished with soulless olive eyes, this is one yummy mummy grilled cheese.
8 slices white sandwich bread
1 cup grated mozzarella
2 plum tomatoes, thinkly sliced
8 large basil leaves, optional
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup store-bought pizza sauce
8 strips mozzarella, 1/4 in. wide x 4 in. long
8 sliced pitted black olives
Preheat broiler. Sprinkle 4 bread slices with cheese, then divide tomato and basil over cheese. Top with remaining 4 bread slices. Brush oil on both sides of sandwiches.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium. Cook 2 sandwiches at a time until golden-brown, 1 to 2 min per side. Repeat with remaining sandwiches, then arrange them on a baking sheet.
Brush tops of sandwiches with pizza sauce. Lay strips of cheese over sauce to make bandages and place olives for eyes. Broil in centre of oven until cheese melts, 1 to 2 min.
