Gourmet Grilled Cheese
My family loves doing grilled cheese and soup for dinner. I love the fact that it is so incredibly quick and easy. It’s the perfect mid-week dinner. However, once in a while I like to kick that grilled cheese up a notch. This Pesto, Tomato & Mozzarella Grilled Cheese is amazing. It is so flavorful and very simple to make. It’s such a great gourmet grilled cheese option for the family!
Gourmet Grilled Cheese Ingredients:
Sliced ciabatta bread
How to Perfect Gourmet Grilled Cheese
The key to a perfectly cooked gourmet grilled cheese is heating up the pan first! Take it from me, the dubbed grilled cheese master, this is an important step that my husband always forgets.
1. Butter one side of each piece of bread, and then spread pesto on the opposite side.
2. Sprinkle some pepper on those tomatoes and slices of mozzarella and stack that sandwich.
3. Get that baby onto the hot pan and press it down a bit.
4. After it’s golden brown, carefully flip it to the other side and do the same.
