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!
- Sourdough Bread
- Fresh Mozzarella (sliced thick)
- 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!
