Grilled Cheese on Roasted Garlic Sourdough and Microgreens from the Farmer’s Market

Grilled Cheese on Roasted Garlic Sourdough and Microgreens from the Farmer’s Market

This weekend we did a big grocery trip. I picked up a beautiful loaf of roasted garlic sourdough bread at the farmer’s market, and I got some kale microgreens at the store. The microgreens were something new for me.

For my grilled cheese sandwich, I decided to try something new. I spread homemade ranch dressing on the bread. I know some people use mayonnaise, and I’ve never done it that way, but this sounded too good to pass up. Oh, and this batch of ranch had fresh dill and parsley.

Then I sliced some muenster cheese and topped both slices.

I put the kale microgreens in the middle, between the cheese slices so they wouldn’t get cooked.

I decided to grill it on a cast iron comal instead of a skillet, so I wouldn’t have to deal with the sides of the pan getting in the way.

Then, instead of smashing it down with the spatula, I used a small plate.

Monterey Chicken and Bacon Sandwiches

Monterey Chicken and Bacon Sandwiches

These sandwiches are made mostly from leftovers. The other day I made black-eyed pea patties and way too much hummus.

Roasted chicken breast
Bacon
Sprouts
Hummus
Monterey jack
Mayonnaise
Multi grain bread

To make two sandwiches place slices of cheese on two slices of bread and leave the other two untopped. Toast all four slices in the oven melting the cheese. Spread the hummus over the cheese, the mayonnaise on the untopped slices, and the chicken bacon and sprouts in between. If you are not using bacon, you will need to salt the chicken.
