The Grown Up Grilled Cheese

You know those days when you have not stopped since your eyes opened at 5:08 am? You have hopped, skipped, and jumped through every activity, to-do, annoyance, and obligation and you have arrived home with wrinkled clothes, disheveled hair, and a near case of exhaustion. Other than a cold beer, a warm meal is just what you need… but the LAST thing you want to do is cook. Enter “The Grown Up Grilled Cheese”.

Is there anything more comforting than a grilled cheese sandwich? Not much.

What makes this grilled cheese “Grown-Up”? Aside from the fact that you can enjoy a nice brew with it, this sandwich is a notch more sophisticated than the Wonder White bread and Kraft Single grilled cheese of the 90’s.

It is almost laughable to provide a recipe for this sandwich since I made it with ingredients found in the kitchen, but it is so delicious and easy I felt I had to share! Also, it is vegetarian!
