Yummy, Yummy, Yummy, Grilled Cheese And Greens Sandwich

April 20, 2020

Sneak soft-cooked greens into the middle of a warm grilled cheese sandwich to add a bit of nutrition to this comforting meal. Substitute your favorite greens for kale if you like, and try with oozy Taleggio cheese for a sophisticated twist.

Method

In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium-high heat until hot.


Add kale, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally until kale begins to wilt, about 5 minutes.



Uncover, reduce heat to medium and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until kale is very soft, about 5 minutes.


Arrange 4 bread slices on a work surface. Top each with one slice of cheese, an even layer of the kale, another slice of cheese, and then a piece of bread.


Brush both sides of each sandwich with remaining olive oil.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.


Place stacked sandwiches in the pan and cook until bread is golden brown and cheese has melted, pressing flat with a spatula occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Serve immediately. Depending on the size of your skillet, you might need to cook these in batches. If so, the first batch can be kept warm in a 200°F oven while finishing the second batch.
