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
- lrg red onion
- 2 tsp garlic diced
- butter softened
- 10 slices artisan bread any flavor you like
- rotisserie chicken breast or sauteed chicken breast ripped up
- sliced mozzerella cheese
- 6 oz crumbled feta
- 2 oz crumbled goat cheese
- 1 to mato 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!
