Farmer’s Market Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
This Farmer’s Market Grilled Cheese sandwich is a delicious twist on its traditional grilled cheese cousin. The creamy goat cheese combined with the garlicky spinach mayo and vegetables makes for an intensely savory meal.
¼ cup mayonnaise
2 C. fresh baby spinach
1 tsp. minced garlic
¼ tsp. pink salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
8 ½-inch-thick slices of sourdough wheat bread
2 Tbs. olive oil
½ 3.5-ounce package of garlic and herb goat cheese, softened
1 small zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
1 tomato, sliced
In a blender or food processor combine the mayonnaise, 1 cup of the spinach, the garlic, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
Brush one side of each slice of bread with the olive oil; place, oiled side down, on waxed paper. Spread goat cheese on half of the slices, layer zucchini, tomato, and remaining spinach on top. Spread some of the spinach mayonnaise on remaining slices; place bread on top of vegetables, spread side down.
Cook sandwiches in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until bread is golden brown, turning once. Pass any remaining spinach mayonnaise.
