Ingredients:  
2 pints (4 cups) cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (or 8 slices of American cheese)
8 basil leaves
8 slices bread
Butter
salt

Directions:
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the tomatoes on the sheet. Roast for 15 minutes until the tomatoes are starting to burst.
3. Place the tomatoes in a bowl and carefully mash with a potato masher to extract the juice. Strain the tomatoes completely and reserve the juice in a small bowl. Mix 1 tablespoon of the juice into cup mayonnaise until it has the consistency of a sauce (double the tomato juice and mayonnaise for extra sauce). Reserve the strained tomatoes and sprinkle them with kosher salt.
4. Spread each slice of bread with tomato mayo. Top with 1/4 of the strained tomatoes, shredded mozzarella (or 2 slices of American cheese), and some torn pieces of basil. Sprinkle the toppings with a pinch of kosher salt and top with another slice of bread.
5. Heat a grill pan to medium high and brush it with butter. Cook the sandwiches until toasty and the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
