Happy National Grilled Cheese Day! Do you know anyone who doesn’t love grilled cheese sandwiches? I don’t. Oooey, gooey, delicious cheese with toasted bread and any number of infinite fillings. It’s comfort food at it’s finest! Now add some pizza toppings between the bread and more cheese on the outside of the bread… Well, then it just becomes Pizza Grilled Cheese perfection on a plate.
In my last post I eluded to various changes in my world. The first and most exciting is the impending arrival of my second grand baby! That’s right, I’m
hardly, not at all, old enough to be a grandma – twice! I suppose this is what happens when you start having your own babies at an early age. Either way, at some point in the next 3 to 6 weeks, Baby J will make his way into the world to meet his Mommy and Daddy, his big sister and ME! I can’t wait!!!
Since my daughter will be delivering at the hospital just up the street from our house, I’ll be babysitting Mini Sous (a.k.a. Grand baby number 1) while her Mommy is in labor. My plan is to have plenty of easy meals ready and these Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are on the menu!
With a mix of Ricotta, Mozzarella and Parmesan, the cheese part of these Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches is covered! Not only does it have cheese in the middle, I used a mixture of shredded Mozzarella and shredded Parmesan on the outside of the sandwiches too. Can you say cheese overload?
I added pepperoni to the center of the sandwiches, but you can add any of your favorite pizza toppings or keep it vegetarian and layer in mushrooms, olives and bell peppers instead of the meat. Be creative! I don’t mind!
So pull up a chair and grab a plate. Omie is making Pizza Grilled Cheese Sandwiches while we wait for Baby J.
