Easy way to dress up a basic grilled cheese sandwich
  • Parmesan Cheese (finely grated)
  • 2 slices thick bread
  • 1 tablespoon pesto sauce
  • 1 slice Havarti cheese
  • Butter
  1. Finely grate parmesan cheese (you can use the canned kind in a pinch but it won't taste quite as good)
  2. Lightly butter both sides of your bread.
  3. Using a spoon, spread the parmesan cheese on top of the buttered sides and use the back of the spoon to softly press it into the bread.
  4. Flip the bread over and spread with pesto sauce on one side.
  5. Add a slice of Havarti cheese and close the sandwich.
  6. Place on low to medium heat in a nonstick pan.
  7. Cook until lightly browned and flip to cook evenly on the other side.
  8. Viola!
