Marinated Mozzarella Grilled Cheese Recipe

Whoever said that grilled cheese was only for kids?!  So move over, here is a gourmet grilled cheese for adults, that even the kids will love.  It's perfect for a snack or for a light lunch paired with soup or salad.  I read somewhere that using mayo instead of butter, cuts down on your fat intake, but still leaves the sandwich grilled to perfection.  I love that this recipe looks fancy without putting forth a whole lot of time or effort.  

4 slices of sourdough bread
5 oz of marinated mozzarella cheese (I used Cappiello marinated Mozzarella Braid) sliced into 8 pieces
1 tomato sliced
4 tablespoons of fat-free mayonnaise

1.  On both sides of the bread spread mayonnaise all over it.  Place 4 slices of mozzarella on one slice of bread.  Add two tomato slices on top of the cheese and then cover with another piece of bread.  

2.  On a griddle or large skillet grill the sandwich on medium heat until the cheese is completely melted, turning once. 

3.  Transfer the sandwich to a separate plate and then cut diagonally.
