Been busy around the garden today and I worked up a bit of an appetite.
I already had the egg going from breakfast so I decided to make some grilled cheese sandwiches. Its nothing special, but I make mine with one different ingredient, pesto!
I slather on a healthy coating of butter to both outer sides of the bread, on the inside I spread on one side a layer of the pesto and then cover with two slices of deli cheese. Today I am using a colby-Jack combo! I had the egg stable at 400* with my cast iron 1/2 moon rib side up. I add the bread to the grill, a nice little sizzle as the butter starts to melt and a few minutes later I am flipping to finish the other side.
Once removed, I let them stand for about 2 minutes to eat, and serve with my favourite side snacks.
I realize there is no WOW factor on this one, just a nice and simple easy lunch recipe I thought I would share! I will say for those who have not tried grilled cheese with pesto, I would highly recommend as it adds that extra flavour that just puts it over the top! Kids enjoy it as well, wasn't sure about that until I tested it last week and they loved it.
