Making Italian Grilled Cheese at Home

In walking around the grocery store, I found this beautiful jar of sun dried tomato bruschetta topping.  I loved the jar just about as much as the contents intrigued me.  That promptly went in my cart as a topper for my Italian Grilled Cheese.  A trip to the deli found a 4-cheese blend slice by Land O’ Lakes.  I had the deli staff slice it in a normal cheese slice and off I went to find some good, hearty bread for my perfect Italian Grilled Cheese sandwich.  I found that in the bakery with a sliced Vienna bread.  It has a dense yet moist crumb and a crusty exterior, making it perfect for toasting.  My Italian Grilled Cheese ingredients were collected.  It was time to make something wonderful.

Changing Up Italian Grilled Cheese

There are so many ways you can change up Italian Grilled Cheese, it’s mind boggling.  Try using pesto or an olive blend for the sun dried tomato bruschetta spread.  I’ve made Italian Grilled Cheese with pesto before, and it is a wonderful use for any leftovers you have from another meal.  Even a smooth pasta sauce, spread on the inside of the bread, makes a beautiful sandwich that is out of the ordinary.  Change out the cheese for any of the wonderful choices you can find in your local deli for an easy change and a wonderful sandwich.  Italian Grilled Cheese is a fantastic way to give yourself a gourmet meal at diner prices.
