Grilled Cheese with Pesto

For sandwich lovers out there, this sandwich is almost a guaranteed favorite and can be made with lots of different additions.  Kids and adults love them.  Optional additions are bacon or turkey.


Sliced sourdough bread

Butter or Margarine for the bread

1 Tbsp. Pesto Sauce

Sliced or shredder cheddar cheese (or whatever your favorite is)

Turkey or Bacon

Butter one side of each of the two bread slices. Spread a thin layer of pesto sauce on the inside of the bread slices. Add sliced cheese and any additional items like turkey slices or bacon.  Place the sandwich in a frying pan on medium heat.  Cover for approximately 5 minutes and flip.  If you have the time and can let the sandwich cool before putting in the lunchbox, it will help to preserve its crunchiness.  Wrap in foil and place in the sandwich compartment.
