Mozzarella and Basil Grilled Cheese

Pin It
So I was perusing the food isle and saw the best looking bread I've seen in a while. It was a deep rustic Whole Grain baguette and it just had to come home with me. In finding such yummy bread I had a really good idea in mind... and it was going to be a simple taste-bud delight.  I also searched two stores until I finally found some fresh basil... not exactly easily accessible in the blizzard days of February.

Grilled Cheeses are one of the comfort foods that will always be a favorite of mine. How can you go wrong with crispy fresh bread with melty good cheese. This is going to be sooooo good....

My Fancy Mozzarella and Basil Grilled Cheese
Original recipe and photos by A Healthy Jalapeno

2 hearty cuts of a Whole Wheat Baguette
2 slices Mozzarella Cheese
Butter (for spreading)

Just as every grilled cheese butter one side of each piece of bread. Put once slice, butter down on the pan and add two slices on mozzarella cheese, add with basil and top with the second piece of bread, butter side out. Pan grill your sandwich flipping half way through and your set.

This is so crunchy, gooey and delicious. Paul decided to add a piece of my Spicy Citrus Chicken from last night for an even larger pow of flavor. I defiantly snick a bite and it was worth it.

(with chicken)
Such goodness, and a must try.
