Waffle-Pressed Pizza Pockets

Pizza in a pinch is how I usually describe these sandwiches. Be sure to use packaged soft sliced bread for the best results.

Ingredients
  • 8 slices soft white or whole wheat bread
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 2 tablespoons marinara sauce, such as Ina Garten's Marinara Sauce or store-bought
  • 2 teaspoons grated Pecorino-Romano or Parmigiano-Reggiano
Directions

Preheat a waffle iron.

Lay 4 slices of the bread on a counter or cutting board. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of the mozzarella on each slice, leaving a 1/4-inch border. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons sauce over the cheese and bread slices. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of the Pecorino-Romano on top of the sauce. Top each with the remaining slices of bread.

Place the sandwiches into the waffle iron (you may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your iron). Close the lid, and cook until the sandwiches are golden, 2 to 4 minutes, depending on the temperature setting of your waffle iron. Serve hot, or wrap in foil to pack for a school lunch or picnic.
