Grilled Cheese Pesto Sandwich




Grilled cheese sandwich is one of my favourite quick snacks. It couldn't be easier and faster to make it. I think I could never get bored of grilled cheese sandwiches. Just think about it. You can think of so many variations for the filling. Okay, this time I can not offer anything special - this one's a simple grilled cheese sandwich with pesto sauce. I just wanted to share my pictures of melting cheese stuffed bread and make you bake one for yourself.

Grilled Cheese Pesto Sandwich
2 slices bread
1 tbsp butter
2 slices mozzarella cheese
2 tsp pesto sauce

1) Heat the pan over medium-low heat.

2) Butter one side of each slice of bread.


3) Place one slice of bread in the pan, buttered side down. (Or you can melt half tablespoon of butter in your pan and place bread over it, leaving another half of tablespoon for another side). Sprinkle some cheese, then spread on the pesto sauce and sprinkle the remaining cheese. Top with the remaining slice of bread, slightly pressing. Cook until golden brown on low heat. Flip and cook until golden brown on the other side. (I also covered with cheese the outer sides of the sandwich. If you want to do so, follow step 4).


4) Sprinkle half of the remaining cheese on an unoccupied section of the pan, place the grilled cheese on top and cook until the cheese has melted. Repeat with another side.

  1. Who can't get bored of grilled cheese?? :P

    You know, even if this is not a new recipe, your photos are so nice (you can feel the texture in them!!), that I wouldn't want to miss this sandwich :)

    I have never tried cheese and pesto sandwich, I love one with red pesto, chicken and cheese, but this, I haven't. And, as I'm a lover of cheese, I am of every type of pesto.

    This reminds me I have halloumi at home, so difficult to find here, and finally I've got it!! I'm wishing to try it!! Not in a sandwich, I think. Just rambling.

    1. It's really difficult to find halloumi! But I'm so in love with that cheese! I love it grilled or in a grilled and then sandwiched between a grilled cheese sandwich with tomatoes! This is amazing. Now as you reminded me I am really going to buy some and make a sanwich with it.
