Tired of the same-ol' grilled cheese sandwich? Add some greens from your Salad Seedsheet & artichokes to make things interesting! This recipe makes two crazy-delicious grilled cheese sandwiches. You'll never look back.

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of your favorite bread
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped artichokes
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves (or any other available hardy greens such as kale, arugula, or mustards)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup shredded Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded romano cheese
  • S & P
  • A couple knobs of butter

Steps:

  1. Sauté chopped garlic and greens in butter and a pinch of salt. Wilt greens, then turn off the heat to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine sautéed greens with Jack, Romano, artichokes, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Spread 1 T of cream cheese on one side of each slice of bread.
  4. Melt another knob of butter in pan on medium-high heat. Place one slice of bread (cream cheese side up) in pan. Scoop spinach/artichoke/cheese mixture onto the slice of bread. Cover with 2nd slice (cream cheese side down for this one).
  5. After the bottom slice is golden brown (~2 minutes), carefully flip the grilled cheese.
  6. While cooking the other side, put a lid on the pan to thoroughly heat the sandwich until the cheese is melted.
  7. Repeat for second sandwich, using the rest of the spinach/artichoke mixture.
  8. Cut in half & savor your triangles of cheesy, veggie heaven.

Optional:

  • Add paprika, chili powder or hot pepper flakes to spinach & artichoke mixture to turn up the heat.

  • Serve with your favorite hot sauce on top.
  • Cut sandwiches into quarters for a party-appetizer.
