Mozzarella Grilled Cheese

We love simple, delicious recipes so today we’re sharing one of our recent favorites! This reinvented childhood classic is SO simple yet SO tasty making it easy to add or subtract ingredients to make it your own. We know this hardly even qualifies as cooking 101; we just love sharing good food!

As always, we’ve listed the full recipe and list of ingredients at the bottom of the post.

001

Grab two slices of bread and spread butter evenly on one side of each slice. Flip the bread slices over so that the buttered sides face down.

002

Place two slices of cheese on the bread and fold together. Place sandwich on the greased griddle and grill until bread is crispy and the cheese has fully melted. Remove sandwich and (carefully) open it up.

003

Add desired amount of tomato and basil. You can use basil leaves or basil paste. Sounds weird and totally gross, right? We’ve found that basil paste actually tastes better than basil leaves and is easy to spread. Also add red pepper flakes if desired.

004

Serve shortly after taking off the grill. We love pairing this simple recipe with some soup too. Enjoy!

As always, below we’ve listed  the full recipe and list of ingredients.

001

Start by combining the cake mix, eggs, and oil into a large mixing bowl and mix.

002

Next, roll into 1 inch balls and place on a non-greased baking sheet.

Once the cookies have cooled, pair cookie sizes together so each pair of cookies is a similar size. Grab a dollop of filling and put in the middle of one cookie.  Take the other cookie and place on top and then softly press down to form the sandwich.

That’s it! Enjoy this marvelous treat with a glass of milk and a good book.:)
