Gourmet Grilled Cheese

This is a really simple Saturday lunch idea.  I know I usually just eat leftovers for lunch during the week but on the weekend when Matthew is home we like to step it up.  The other day he used some ingredients we already had on hand and grilled up the most delicious gourmet grilled cheese.  I made a simple salad to go with it.

Would be really nice for a light supper as well.

ciabatta bread (we used onion)
provolone cheese sliced really thin
tomatoes sliced really thin
mixed greens
bacon (we used bacon pieces because that's what we had on hand)
dijon mustard
Dukes Mayo

Make your sandwich using all the ingredients above.  Lightly coat a grill pan with butter and grill sandwich a few minutes on each side until the cheese is melted and the bread is crispy.

I also made a simple salad and topped with my favorite Brianna's dressing.  I'm also on a major sparkling water kick.  LaCroix pamplemouse (grapefruit) is my current favorite.

What's your favorite lunch at home?

And one last thing, Wells was my helpful assistant and wanted me to photograph her lunch as well.  Let's be real, girl walked inside and ate a bowl of pretzels.  I love that she wants to be involved.



  1. Get in my belly!!!! Looks so amazing!!! And I love that Wells wanted to participate!! Love her!

  2. mmmm yum! i love grilled cheese on the weekends -- i usually make mine with sliced apples! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  3. Looks so good! I have two cases of the grapefruit flavor in my house right now. It's the only thing I drink (besides coffee and wine, obviously!!)

  4. That looks so yummy! Definitely adding it to my list!

    Loving the new picture on the top right too!

  5. Yummy! Have you tried that grilled mozzarella/tomato/pesto recipe floating around pinterest? It's really good and rich! Dasani now makes a sparkling water and it's great, the size of a soda box so they last longer in our house!

  6. This looks absolutely delicious! Giving this a try. And love that little one wants to be involved! So sweet.

  7. So so good. Love grown up grilled cheese recipes! :)

  8. Funny! I am digging La Croix these days too. I am on a Peach-Pear kick right now. They have a ton of fun flavors at Target. :)))


Thanks for joining the conversation!
