It got a little chilly outside recently and as a result I have been making a lot of warm comfort foods over the last week. The cold is working its way through my family right now and everyone has the sniffles but me. So I have been toiling away like crazy in my kitchen making soups, sandwiches, and every comfort dish I can think of to help my family feel better. One of my go-to comfort foods (especially for lunch time) is the grilled cheese sandwich. Only… I have been having a craving for caprese lately. So I decided to combine my love of grilled cheese with my need to eat caprese and BOOM – my grilled cheese caprese sandwich is the result (it is really yummy too).

How to make it:
I have been in the mood for caprese for a little over a week now and I do not want to tell you how many times I have made this sandwich for myself. Typically when I make this grilled cheese caprese sandwich I will make a traditional grilled cheese for my children – only the last few times I have made it my son has negotiated half my sandwich away from me. He is a big fan of this sandwich as well.

I love a good grilled cheese sandwich and frequently play around with how I make it. Sometimes I add meat, sometimes I add veggies, and sometimes I go traditional. It is fun to switch things up and my kids like to help me experiment in the kitchen.
What is your favorite type of grilled cheese sandwich?
