National Grilled Cheese Day!
No matter how you like your grilled cheese sandwich, we must admit celebrating odd holidays is a great way to make your house a home. Celebrate your very own traditions no matter what they might be.
Mozzarella, Pesto, and Ham Toasties
Rather than griddling these ham and mozzarella creations, stick the pesto-topped bread slices under the broiler. It will already be nice and toasty from roasting the red pepper! To save time, feel free to swap store-bought basil pesto in for the homemade mint-parsley pesto included in the recipe (although the latter is next-level nutty thanks to plenty of toasted almonds).
Make-Ahead Smoked Turkey and Grilled Onion Panini
Build and freeze these Italian-inspired turkey sandwiches so you’re never more than minutes away from melty mozzarella cheese bliss. Try the filling combination inside a sandwich thin, bagel halves, two slices of bread, or even a pita.
Bacon-Cheddar Chipotle Chicken Panini
Stacked with bacon, ranch, cheddar, and more, you’d never expect this BLT upgrade to be as diet-friendly as it actually is (about 400 calories and a whopping 32 grams of protein!). Our little secrets? Including plenty of nutritious veggies for satisfaction and making high-impact, barely noticeable swaps like calling for light ranch, reduced-fat cheddar, and light sour cream.
Roasted Red Pepper Gazpacho with Pepperoni Cheese Toast
In this play on pizza parlor favorites, we separate the sauce (here, pepper-tomato soup) and the crust, toppings, and cheese (via the sandwich). Combine in your ideal ratios by dunking or scooping, or enjoy one at a time.
Tangy, crumbly blue cheese joins forces with melty provolone on this grilled sandwich that’s beefed up with savory slices of bresaola (cured meat). If you can’t find bresaola, try speck, prosciutto, or ham instead.
No matter how you like your grilled cheese we hope you’ll consider celebrating a few off-the-wall traditions with those in your house to make it feel like home-sweet-home.
