Rainbow Grilled Cheese

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

If you thought rainbows were just pretty to look at, wait'll you taste a rainbow -- in this fresh veggie Rainbow Grilled Cheese sandwich!


Say cheeeeeese!

Today we are taking a classic grilled cheese sandwich and giving it a little makeover with some fresh veggies and COLOR!

That’s right.  We’re going beyond the standard bread, butter and cheese sandwich to add in some extra healthy veggies that will make this grilled cheese all the more flavorful,  and with the rainbow veggies, it’s also way more fun to eat!

Here’s the how to!

 

Sautee vegetables in skillet.

Get those veggies ready!  Start out by sautéing your colors of the rainbow in olive oil over medium-high heat:red, orange and yellow bell peppers, purple cabbage and baby spinach.

 

Butter one side of each piece of bread.

Then butter up that spread!  Lay out four pieces of bread and butter one side of each.

 

Place veggies on one half and cheese on the other.

Pop that skillet back on the stove (this time over medium-low heat), and place the bread buttered-side down.  If your skillet is not big enough, you may need to do this in two batches.  Place a slice of cheese on top of each piece of bread.  Then add the veggies in rainbow-color order on top of 2 of the 4 slices of bread.

 

Put two halves of sandwich together.

Once the bread is toasted and the cheese begins to melt, remove the sandwiches with a spatula, and top the veggie slices of bread with the cheese- slices of bread.  Look at all of those great colors!

 

Cut sandwich diagonally.

Use a knife to slice the sandwiches in half on the diagonal.

And admire your rainbow!

 

Food Should Taste Good chips on the side.

Then serve with some Food Should Taste Good veggie chips.  Delish!
