April 12 th – National Grilled Cheese Day
My tribute to the grilled cheese is actually a Panini on Naan Tandoori Bread.
I guess it’s actually a “Naan Grilled Cheese” 🙂
I layered Fontinella cheese and a few slices of prosciutto on the Naan bread and then I slathered it with a walnut and arugula pesto. Make this vegetarian without the prosciutto and just add extra cheese and a few apple slices.
I’m sharing my pesto recipe today and will show with pictures how I made the grilled cheese with the Panini maker.
Please let me know how you like this recipe on facebook or instagram – I look forward to hearing your comments…thanks!
