My family loves a good grilled cheese but sometimes the cheese and bread routine can get a little boring. I like to jazz things up a bit with adding a few vegetables to our grilled cheese sandwiches. A vegetable stuffed grilled cheese sandwich is a delicious lunch anytime of the year!
makes 4 sandwiches
With a knife, slice the red bell pepper and onion in thin slices. Heat oil over medium heat in a saute pan. Add peppers and onions and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Set aside until needed.
Spread butter on one side of every piece of bread.
Place 4 bread slices, butter side down, on a griddle or large skillet over medium heat. Place one slice of cheese on each slice of bread and top with a large spoonful of bell pepper and onion mixture. Top with a few leaves of spinach and another slice of cheese. Top with a slice of bread butter side up.
With a spatula, flip the sandwiches over. Grill for 2 minutes more or until the bread is lightly golden. Remove from the griddle and serve.
