Let’s be honest….almost everyone loves a good grilled cheese, right? Especially when soup season comes around. My kids love them, and they eat them crust and all. I like them, too, but lately, I’ve been experimenting with more grown-up versions of the grilled cheese. Let me share a very easy and delicious one with you.
First, take a handful of spinach and bunch it up tightly and cut it into tiny, thin strips. Then butter the outside of two pieces of bread. Any bread will do, but I like to use something more “grown-up” than simple whole wheat bread. I used a nutty, grain bread this time, but experiment with whatever you like.
Sprinkle some crumbled feta cheese then the spinach then a little bit more feta on one slice of bread. Top with the other slice. Grill however you like…I use my old George Forman grill to press the sandwich like a panini. It gives it ridges and everything! (If you’ve never thought of that, don’t worry, I hadn’t either until recently…I guess today you get two tips for the price of one!)
You can experiment with different types of cheese, bread and other ingredients. Brie melts beautifully into a grilled sandwich, I think. And, goat cheese? Well, goat cheese is good in almost anything, right?
