Tonight I felt like experimenting in the kitchen. I’m a fan of simple, tasty recipes. This vegetable grilled cheese sandwich was easy, delicious, and the flavor options are limitless!
|Ready to go in the oven
I cooked these in my convection oven on the “Toast” setting for about 3 minutes. If you don’t have a convection oven you can use a panini maker, foreman grill, or cook them in the oven or broiler. I left my sandwich open faced to cook so I could monitor the melting cheese. I closed Jesse’s sandwich. I wanted to see if either way worked better. The open faced method led to a slightly crispier sandwich.

I served both sandwiches with sliced granny smith apples. Jesse said that it was “fantastic” and he “really enjoyed it.” His sandwich was spicy and flavorful. I ended up putting some apple slices on half of my sandwich, and it added a whole new delicious element to the flavor. It was a refreshing summer meal, served with a side of watermelon.
