cheese head

I was on twitter the other day and someone said if she was a vegetarian she would only eat pasta according to her pinterest board. I AM a vegetarian, and if you looked at my pinterest food board (feel free to follow me here), you'd think I only eat grilled cheese. Seriously, how many variations can I pin? From sweet ricotta and blackberry jam ones to savory avocado and egg breakfast ones, I have pinned them all!  I do love a good grilled cheese. Especially on days when it is a bit chilly outside. This Italian version was inspired by leftovers in my fridge.

To make your own gather the following:
unslated organic butter
oat nut bread or other sliced bread for toasting
sun dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
organic baby spinach
crumbled feta
shredded mozzeralla

Melt a pad of butter in the skillet. Toast both sides of one slice of bread, and set aside. Repeat process with second slice. Add more butter to pan. Place bread back in skillet. Top with remaining ingredients and other slice of bread. Warm till cheese melts and bread is golden.

It may sound cheesy (pun intended), but this sandwich was incredible. Salty tomatoes, tangy cheese, buttery bread - just amazing. I promise to find more inspirational ideas and share them with you soon. If you have any ideas, feel free to leave them in a comment below. I'd love to hear them!

  1. I just found your site through pinterest, and I am so happy I did! I am not a vegetarian, but I lean toward it often. My husband will not even consider it! It looks like your blog will be very helpful in making foods for him that can be modified for me. Thank you!

  2. Sometimes only this kind of food will do.
