Introduction: Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

About: I am slowly (but steadily) gaining knowledge of woodworking and some (very) basic metalworking. I do some basic python, C++ coding and circuitry. I also cook.

Do you enjoy Italian pesto? How about the classic grilled cheese? If you enjoy both of these then why not combine them? Follow this instructable and I will show you how to do just that. Fair warning, this is my first Instructable so bear with me. Constructive criticism would be appreciated.

Now here is what you'll need-


  • 2 slices of bread
  • Pesto (fresh, homemade, store bought, whatever works)
  • 1/4 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

And don't forget your Appetite!

Step 1:

Take your pesto and spread a thin layer onto each slice of bread. Heat a frying pan (on the stove) to medium.

Step 2:

Place one slice of bread in frying pan, pesto side up. Then place cheese on bottom bread slice and place slice on top of the cheese, pesto side down.

Step 3:

Flip sandwich once its bottom is golden. Turn heat to low or off and put a lid on the pan. Leave grilled cheese in pan until outside is golden-brown and the cheese is melted.

Step 4:

Enjoy you "Italian" grilled cheese sandwich! If your looking for something even more flavorful, then, you could add a thin slice or two of tomato to create a caprese sandwich!
