WORLD: Grilled Cheese with Spinach and Tomato

August 23, 2006 at 10:07 pm Leave a comment

I am pleased to introduce the new and improved Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I like to make it with goat cheese.

from Recipezaar

1 slice of cheese
2 slices of tomato
6 spinach leaves, torn in half
2 slices of bread
1 TBSP margarine or butter
1 dash of salt
1 dash of garlic powder

1. Spray the frying pan with cooking spray.
2. Turn the stove on to medium heat, add the tomatoes to the outside edges of the pan, and add the spinach to the center.
3. Sprinkle salt and garlic powder over the vegetables.
4. Toss the spinach frequently and turn the tomatoes over after a minute or so.
5. Cook the tomatoes until they are just a little soft. Don’t let them get too mushy.
6. Cook the spinach until it is slightly wilted.
7. Take both out when they are done and set them aside.
8. Wipe the pan out with a towel, and set it back on medium heat.
9. Butter one piece of bread as you would for a regular grilled cheese sandwich.
10. Put the bread in the pan, place the cheese on top of it, and then place the spinach and tomatoes on top of the cheese.
11. Allow it to heat.
12. Butter the other piece of bread, and fry the sandwich until it is nicely browned on both sides.
13. Remove and serve.


I just tried this, not sure what to expect, and I loved it! I picked up a copy of Jessica Seinfeld’s Deceptively Delicious, and took some ideas from her Grilled Cheese recipe. Once I cooked the spinach and tomato (chopped), I mixed them in a bowl with 1/4 cup shredded cheese, 1/4 cup butternut squash puree, and 1/4 tsp garlic salt. I slapped that on the bread and grilled it up. Yum.
