Growing up my dad’s favorite meal to make for us was grilled cheese with tomato soup! It’s still one of my favorite meals, only NOW I like to DRESS UP my grilled cheese! TODAY is National Grilled Cheese day, so the perfect day to enjoy this Mediterranean grilled cheese!
I LOVE the flavors from other cultures, I think most of my favorite burgers or grilled cheese creations are inspired by the food from another country! This grilled cheese is no exception, with three cheeses -mozzerella, goat cheese and feta – there is a lot to love about this sandwich!
Chicken Mediterranean grilled cheese
- 2 tbsp oil
- 6 oz spinach
- 1 lrg red onion
- 2 tsp garlic diced
- 8 Tbsp butter softened
- 10 slices artisan bread any flavor you like
- 1 rotisserie chicken breast or sauteed chicken breast ripped up
- 5 slices mozzerella cheese
- 6 oz crumbled feta
- 2 oz crumbled goat cheese
- 1 tomato diced
- 1.5 oz Kalamata olives chopped
- In a saute pan heat up the oil
- cook the red onion, after a few mins add the spinach, and when it starts to shrink add the garlic and cook until translucent
- Heat up your pan or skillet to medium
- butter one side of each slice of bread
- with the butter side out - layer the mozzerella, chicken, spinach/onion mixture, olives, tomatoes and then the goat and feta cheeses, top with another slice of bread (butter side out)
- cook each side until golden brown, slice and serve!
I personally thought I added too much of the kalamata olives, I’ll be a little more sparing next time, but that’s the great thing about grilled cheese! you can personalize it for each person, my husband wanted MORE of the kalamata olives! They have a strong flavor for SURE so if you don’t like it you can use regular olives instead!
