Every now and again I’m in the mood for a grilled cheese sandwich… not just cheese, melted on bread, no, I like mine with veggies, herbs and cheese or any combination thereof. Grown-up style…
This wasn’t a ‘planned meal’ by any means, I just used what I had on hand – a bit of fresh parsley, broccoli, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and artichoke hearts. Pesto would have been good too or fresh basil, the options are endless – use what you have – get creative, have fun with an old (and easy) favorite!
Cheese, bread and veggies – what could be better? Are you vegan? Well, then, use vegan cheese!
Simply saute veggies in a bit of olive oil, add a pinch of two of salt and pepper.
Butter one side of each slice of bread (whatever kind of bread you like).
Place one slice of bread, buttered side down, onto a skillet over medium heat.
Place sauteed veggies on bread first, then top with cheese…
cover with lid (for a short time to help cheese melt), then top with second slice of bread, and flip to brown the other side.
Remove from pan, let rest a few minutes and enjoy.
Grown-up grilled cheese, yum!
Need a summer inspired sandwich – go here!
What’s your favorite sandwich?
Love your idea, this is one beautiful sandwich.
Thank you Norma! Looking forward to using freshly picked ingredients…if it will only warm up! (:
One of my favorite sandwiches is a grilled cheese (I love them with pesto too!), but next would be: something along the lines of an… avocado, cheddar, turkey, bacon and greens.
Ooooh avocado!Your idea sounds delicious – my little guy would love your suggestion!
I like the idea of your grown up grilled cheese, I bet it was delicious. My favorites…a BLT and sliced chicken and avocado. 🙂
Thank you! Before I became a vegetarian decades ago, I used to love BLTs…and avocado goes with just about anything! thanks for sharing! (:
Simple and so delicious!
