Let me start off by saying this is certainly not one of my healthier recipes. Now that I got that out of the way, this grilled cheese is incredible. And while I do not condone this as healthy, you are getting some veggies along side all that cheese!
Note: make sure you strategically place your cheese if you want to get that awesome pull apart cheese look when you cut this sandwich in half, otherwise you will be disappointed. Case in point check my video on Instagram.
Green Goddess Grilled Cheese
Herbs, Avocado & Spinach gives this grilled cheese incredible flavor and texture.
For the Green Goddess Pesto
- 1/2 cup basil
- 1/2 cup parsley
- 1/4 cup scallions
- 2 tbsp pine nuts
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
For the grilled cheese
- 1 tsp butter
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- 2 TBSP Green Goddess Pesto
- 1-2 oz havarti cheese
- 1 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup spinach
- 1/4 avocado
In a food processor, add the pesto ingredients, basil, parsley, scallions, pine nuts, garlic, and lemon juice. Blend until all the ingredients are well combined.
In a large skillet, on medium heat, add the teaspoon of butter.
Once the butter is melted, add the two slices of sourdough. Flip so both sides are toasted evenly.
Take the toasted bread off the skillet. Add the pesto, havarti cheese, mozzarella cheese, spinach and avocado to the bread. Top with the other piece of bread
Add the sandwich back to the skillet. Cook on each side for about 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted to your liking!
