Meatless Monday: Provençal Grilled Cheese

November 5, 2012

Provençal grilled cheese is a quick and easy meatless meal.  A plain grilled cheese is already tasty but add some onions, eggplant, and parsley and it turns into a dynamite sandwich.  This grilled cheese is made with a mixture of young and aged cheddar cheese to create the perfect balance of flavors; not mild but also not too overpowering.  A slice of tomato or grilled squash would be delicious additions.
