MPT Grilled Cheese

No, it’s not an “empty” grilled cheese! It’s a different kind of grilled cheese to try out on your kids: Mozzarella, Pesto and Tomato Grilled Cheese. My two (ages 3 and 7) really LOVED it and begged for more!

MPT Grilled Cheese Ingredients

Garlic pesto sauce
Mozzarella slices
Your favorite bread (white, wheat, sourdough, etc.)

How to Make:

  1. Slice your tomato as thin as you would like.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon of some of your favorite garlic pesto sauce onto one side of a piece of bread.
  3. Set a piece of mozzarella on top of the pesto spread.
  4. Put a couple of thinly sliced tomatoes on top of the cheese.
  5. Close with another piece of bread.
  6. Put a little butter in your pan over medium-high heat.
  7. Grill your sandwich like you would regularly.  Keep in mind that the mozzarella cheese takes a little longer to melt.
