Green Goddess Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

March has come in like a lion, and with the freezing rain warning we have here in Toronto, it also looks like it’s going to go out like one too! I for one am missing the warmer weather, so injecting a little colour by way of fresh fruit and veggies is key!

Say hello to my Green Goddess Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, filled to the brim with delicious vegetables like spinach, sprouts, avocado and tomatillos, alongside two different types of cheese: havarti and mozzarella!

You can never have too many layers with this sandwich. I prefer to use four layers of sliced cheese and then layer in different levels of veggies in between each slice. I try to put the vegetables that I want to cook least, like the spinach, in the centre of the sandwich so they will cook less as the rest of the sandwich cooks.

Though I meant to use some fresh herbs in this Green Goddess Grilled Cheese, I totally forgot and ran out. Basil, parsley or cilantro would be absolutely delicious in this sandwich and add further nutritional value, as well as add to the green theme.

I would be a bit delusional if I didn’t admit that I toasted the bread a little too much on this sandwich. However, I have a somewhat good explanation for this…As a kid growing up, my dad always made us Bacon & Tomato Sandwiches. He also has a penchant for overcooking things sometimes, such as toast…That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it! 😉

Avocado might seem like a strange thing to add to a warm sandwich but surprisingly, it works really well here! Avocado grilled cheese has actually become pretty popular in the foodie world, so I thought it was about time for me to give it a try!

    I love everything about this recipe! I am such a sandwich person! I can’t wait for the farmer’s market to open back up. I never thought to use tomatillos on a sandwich, but I am addicted to those things so I guess what I’ll be trying out as soon as I can get them fresh again!

    I’ve seen tomatillos at our grocery stores but have never bought one. This just might make me!

    Oooh this sandwich looks wonderful! I’ve been making grilled cheese pretty often lately with Udi’s gluten free bread. Adding some of these green ingredients would make it much better for me!

      Thanks Jenna!! I’ll have to try that brand out – I don’t normally eat a lot of bread because I find it very filling so gluten free may be a good alternative for me to try!
