Step 1

In a large bowl, mash blackberries with a fork and stir in chopped basil. Heat an electric griddle or large skillet over medium-low heat. Lay a piece of cheese on each slice of bread, then top with a few spoonfuls of smashed blackberries. Gently pick up 3 slices, brush some olive oil on the bottom, and place on the griddle or skillet. Place the remaining slices on top, brushing them with olive oil too. Let each side cook for about 4-5 minutes or until everything is toasty and gooey!
