Margherita Grilled Cheese
To pay tribute to Grilled Cheese Day I have decided to make a fancy grilled cheese for my lunch today. The Margherita Grilled Cheese.
I started by adding butter to the pan. You can choose any type of fat you like, I think just for the style of grilled cheese that olive oil would be delicious as well. Gives it more of pungent flavor. I decided with butter just for the sake as that is my normal go to when I decide I want to make a grilled cheese.
Now grab two slices of any bread of your choosing. The bread I had on hand was multigrain rye bread, which is not too bad as it adds a little extra texture as well it is an healthier option at hand. Nothing beats though a good homemade bread or maybe even some sour dough bread. I invite you to experiment on the style of bread you choose and let me know what you favor the most.
I grabbed some pizza mozzarella from when I made pizzas for my mothers birthday a little while ago. I also grabbed some basil from my grow room and a tomato. Now I know I didn't grab the better version of mozzarella this is just what I had on hand to make it work.
Once everything is all gathered and sliced up assemble the ingredients into the pan. I also topped it off with some minced garlic as well as salt and pepper. Serve with anything you like and Bon Appetit.
Margherita Grilled Cheese Recipe
1 TSP Butter (fat of your choosing)
2 Slices of Bread
1/4 Mozzarella Cheese
1-2 Basil Leaves
1/2 TSP Minced Garlic
Salt and Pepper to taste
Gather ingredients, heat butter (or oil) in pan over medium heat. As butter is melting slice tomatoes to desired thickness and chop basil. If using fresh mozzarella slice to a nice thin consistency for melting.
Put on slice of bread into the pan and top with cheese, tomato, basil, garlic and salt and pepper. Add the other slice of bread.
Wait till one side is toasted to desired and flip. Adding a lid helps cheese melt better. Once both sides are toasted, it is ready to serve.
