TIRED OF THE SAME-OL' GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH? ADD SOME GREENS FROM YOUR SALAD SEEDSHEET & ARTICHOKES TO MAKE THINGS INTERESTING! THIS RECIPE MAKES TWO CRAZY-DELICIOUS GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICHES. YOU'LL NEVER LOOK BACK!
2 cups fresh spinach leaves (or any other available hardy greens such as kale, arugula, or mustards)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup shredded Jack cheese
1/4 cup shredded romano cheese
S & P
A couple knobs of butter
Sauté chopped garlic and greens in butter and a pinch of salt. Wilt greens, then turn off the heat to cool.
In a medium bowl, combine sautéed greens with Jack, Romano, artichokes, and salt and pepper to taste.
Spread 1 T of cream cheese on one side of each slice of bread.
Melt another knob of butter in pan on medium-high heat. Place one slice of bread (cream cheese side up) in pan. Scoop spinach/artichoke/cheese mixture onto the slice of bread. Cover with 2nd slice (cream cheese side down for this one).
After the bottom slice is golden brown (~2 minutes), carefully flip the grilled cheese.
While cooking the other side, put a lid on the pan to thoroughly heat the sandwich until the cheese is melted.
Repeat for second sandwich, using the rest of the spinach/artichoke mixture.
Cut in half & savor your triangles of cheesy, veggie heaven.
Add paprika, chili powder or hot pepper flakes to spinach & artichoke mixture to turn up the heat.
Serve with your favorite hot sauce on top.
Cut sandwiches into quarters for a party-appetizer.
