Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich

From the Full Belly Sisters

Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The truth is, ever since I saw this green grilled cheese sandwich from Full Belly Sisters, I wanted it … bad. But circumstances did not avail themselves to fulfilling my desires … until tonight.

My daughter was out with her dad. My son was busy with his game downstairs. I was pretty much left alone for the evening … and it was a gorgeous spring night … perfect for a light dinner and a glass of wine on the patio, and then a walk in the forest.

And since I had some luscious green creamy paste left from the little green toasts that I had for lunch, I looked up the recipe and noticed mine wasn’t too far from the mark. All I needed was a little cheese. I didn’t have any gouda on hand, so I used havarti. That did the trick.

My sandwiches were little because my bread is just a small baguette … and so I served my mini-grilled cheese sandwiches (to myself) with a glass of my dad’s wine and a little dish of honeydew melon (keeping with the “green” theme …) … oh it was SO good!

I am going to send you over there for the recipe. Really, mine wasn’t much different than hers. I added some garlic. And a little parmesan and shredded Havarti cheese in place of the Gouda.

This is really a grilled cheese sandwich experience you don’t want to miss. Look at all that gooey green deliciousness.

  2. I am so jealous! I would love to have a night just all by myself and cook and eat whatever I like- not what my teenagers want. This grilled sandwich would be on my list for sure.

      LOL I know what you mean! It is rare to have a night at home completely to myself. Usually we are rushing to get somewhere and there’s not much time to cook and sit down to eat.
