I wanted grilled cheese for lunch. But I wasn't exactly in the mood for plain-jane grilled cheese. So, I opened my fridge, and I had an idea....based on the random things I had.
I had a tomato. I had some medallion slices of bocconcini cheese (and also a random amount of cheese I had shredded the night before). I had red onion. And I had pepperoni.
It was meant to be.
Pizza Grilled Cheese (for 2)
4 slices of bread
Butter for bread
4 slices of tomato
1/4 red onion, sliced thin
2 bocconcini medallions
Approx. 1/4 cup shredded cheese (I had a mozzarella and cheddar mix)
10-12 slices pepperoni
Heat large skillet on medium heat
Butter one side each of the 4 slices of bread
Divide ingredients among the 2 sandwiches, and assemble them with buttered sides of bread facing out (tip: add cheese first, and in between each of the other ingredients, add cheese so that it all melts and sticks together. If you don't, you'll just find that the sandwich slides apart for lack of cheese "glue").
Put the sandwich on the frying pan, and let warm slowly while toasting (it took about 20 minutes to be "just right" for me). If you do it quick, the cheese won't melt sufficiently, especially the bocconcini.
I ate mine as is, but my husband dipped his in caesar dressing (as he would pizza).
This was a good grilled cheese. Goo-ood!
