Grilled Brie and Tomato Sandwiches

Grilled Brie and Tomato Sandwiches

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, mashed with a pinch of kosher salt into a paste
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Pinch cayenne pepper
4-3/4-inch-thick slices ciabatta bread
3 oz. cold brie, thinly sliced
2 small tomatoes, thinly sliced
10 basil leaves, thinly sliced
Freshly ground black pepper

1. In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, garlic paste, lemon juice, and cayenne.

2. Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lightly spread one side of each slice of bread with the mayonnaise (about 1 tsp. per slice).

3. Put all four bread slices, mayo side down, into the skillet and cook until they just start to turn golden, about 2 minutes. Divide the brie between two of the slices. Cook for 2 minutes more until the bread is well browned and the brie is soft. Remove the bread from the pan.

4. Top the brie with the tomatoes and basil. Spread a little more mayonnaise on the untoasted side of the remaining two slices of bread, and season with pepper. Close, slice, and serve.
