LiveDan330.com has a new cookbook! We are running a series of posts on grilled cheese recipes to promote it. If you like this recipe, you will love the book. Grilled and Cheesy: 12 Gourmet Grilled Cheeses Easily Made at Home showcases “The Leviathan” which won the Boars Head Boldest Bracket contest in 2014, as well as “The Springly,” a gruyere cheese and asparagus sandwich. It also includes a Hawaiian version of a grilled cheese, an avocado and egg breakfast sandwich, and a decadent cheesecake-filled french toast. Grilled and Cheesy is available through Amazon here.
We all gotta get our veggies somehow. Why not in a grilled cheese (with bacon, of course!)? Doesn’t the broccoli look great! I really recommend that you get a cast iron pan and fry up some of the broccoli on high heat when you make this sandwich. It gives the broccoli a nice flavor and texture and it still counts as a daily vegetable.
- 1/2 cup broccoli
- 3 pieces of bacon
- 1/3 cup cheddar cheese or cheddar mozzarella mix
1. Cook the broccoli by either steaming it or frying it in a pan with a little bit of olive oil.
2. Butter the outside of your bread and layer like this: Cheese, bacon, cheese, broccoli, cheese then top slice of bread.
3. Cook on both sides until golden brown and the cheese is oozing over the sides. Seriously, way to go on eating your veggies! And, it’s okay to admit you like it. Your mom will be so proud!
