Grown Up Margherita Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grown Up Margherita Grilled Cheese Sandwich

With April being Grilled Cheese month, I decided that we really needed to re-visit our delicious Grown Up Margherita Grilled Cheese Sandwich!  Simply put, these grown-up grilled cheese sandwiches are amazing!  I think I had this for lunch for four days in a row.  The combination of the sourdough, mozzarella, pesto, and balsamic is so good.  Grilled cheese is not just for kids anymore!  I highly recommend investing in a good bottle of aged balsamic.  I recently purchased a REALLY good balsamic and it is amazing the difference between it and the cheap stuff.  An aged balsamic is almost like a balsamic reduction, it comes out more thick like a syrup.  The taste is incredible and it will last you a really long time!

Grown Up Margherita Grilled Cheese Sandwich


  • Sourdough Bread
  • Fresh Mozzarella (sliced thick)
  • Pesto
  • Tomatoes
  • Arugula Lettuce
  • Balsamic (a good, aged bottle)


  • Butter one side of two slices of sourdough. Place one of the slices of bread in a fry pan over medium heat. Layer with sliced mozzarella, then a thin spread of pesto, then sliced tomatoes (I also like to salt and pepper my tomatoes).
  • Put on the top slice of bread and grill both sides until toasty. Remove to a plate and open the sandwich to add the arugula tossed in some balsamic. Put sandwich back together and enjoy!
