I was debating whether or not to post this sandwich. After all, it is only a sandwich. But after two days of making special trips home for lunch…because ALL I WANTED was to have only this sandwich….I think it’s worth sharing. The Spinach & Avocado with Pesto Grilled Cheese is the bomb!!
~ Spinach & Avocado with Pesto Grilled Cheese ~
Take a nice grainy crusty bread and cut yourself a couple slices. Then spread on basil pesto and top with fresh baby spinach leaves, sliced avocado, mozzarella cheese and a sprinkling of salt & freshly cracked pepper. Butter sandwich and pan sear on each side until golden brown, using a bacon press or cast iron skillet to press down.
The pesto does make this sandwich a little bit unctuous I must admit, and there is the creamy avocado and warm melting mild mozzarella….oh my. No worries, surely grainy bread & fresh baby spinach qualifies this Spinach & Avocado with Pesto Grilled Cheese as a healthy lunch option ;)
