It seems almost silly to write a recipe for a grilled cheese sandwich. This was just too good, gooey, and cheesy not to share.
Grilled cheese and a hot bowl of tomato soup (if not homemade, then Pacific roasted red pepper and tomato soup) is one of the best comfort food lunches ever. Well, maybe a tie with macaroni and cheese.
OK, OK, I am a cheeseaholic. I must be part mouse. If something has cheese (not bleu cheese though), I will probably want to eat it.
Back to the recipe, I had a few slices of whole wheat bread which I had to use up quickly because they were going to go stale. Plus Passover was coming (so no bread allowed for a week).
I love grilled cheese and this is where buying cheese ends comes in handy. I had some cheddar, some monterey jack, and some Swiss cheese left in the container, plus I had just bought some fresh mushrooms and spinach.
Three Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwich Substitutions and Variations
- use olive oil instead of canola oil, or a mixture of butter and oil
- swap the three cheeses for mozzarella and replace the spinach with eggplant (this would work even better with ciabetta instead of whole wheat)
