Bleu Monday Grilled Cheese
Bleu Monday Grilled Cheese is a variant of the classic grilled cheese sandwich. Bleu and cheddar cheeses are complemented by a marinara for a burst of flavor in every bite.
- 4 slices bread firm, fiber-rich breads work best
- 2 TBSP softened butter or margarine spread
- 4 TBSP bleu cheese crumbled
- 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese
- 4 TBSP cherry red marinara
Spread butter or margarine on one side of each bread slice.
Place 2 TBSP of blue cheese on unbuttered side of two pieces of bread.
Scoop 2 TBSP of marinara onto cheese.
Place slice of cheddar cheese on bleu cheese and marinara sauce.
Heat skillet on medium heat.
Place loaded bread slices on skillet and top with other piece of bread, buttered side facing up.
Toast bread in skillet until bread is browned and cheese begins to soften, flip and toast other side until bread is browned and cheese melts.
Cherry Red Marinara
You can substitute shredded cheddar for a cheddar slice, but slices are easier to manage.
This sandwich works well with soups, especially potato or tomato soup, warm or cold potato salads, and garden salads.
