Broccoli Grilled Cheese
Whole wheat bread, broccoli, pepper jack cheese
These sammies were yum yum yummy! I had tried making them before, years ago, and all the broccoli fell out when I tried to flip them. This was still kind of a problem but if you use a lot of cheese and chop the broccoli really small, it works better.
Putting other things into a grilled cheese is so fun! I used to be pretty obsessed with bacon grilled cheese as a kid. These make the traditional sandwich a little more nutritious and some pretty colour too. I wasn’t sure what kind of cheese to use for these at first. Cheddar is typically paired with broccoli but I wanted something more exciting. The pepper jack actually worked quite well and spiced up the flavour a little bit.
I served these with a can of tomat0-based vegetable soup but homemade would be even better! The extra veggies gave us more nutrients, plus you just can’t have a grilled cheese without dipping it in tomato soup. I’m pretty sure it’s a rule.
