Lasagna Grilled Cheese

Affiliate Disclosure

I was having a somewhat stressful Saturday–and Saturdays are supposed to be stress-free! I had so much to do and I had no lunch plans. And because I’m big on meal planning (you may have noticed) I get really frustrated when I don’t have one. I hate to go out for burgers or something worse just because I didn’t have a good plan. So, I was frustrated.

Then my daughter said “Mom, I’ll take care of lunch.”
Stress. Gone.

And then this shows up in front of me!

Lasagna Grilled Cheese; Creamy ricotta, gooey mozzarella, fresh basil and tomato. A delicious update to your grilled cheese sandwich.

I’m not kiddin’, my mood went from very low to pretty much giddy.
Lunch was not only “taken care of” it was delicious!
Yes, I was overtly grateful.

From the buttery crisp crunch of the grilled bread to the gooey cheese and fresh tomatoes and basil…
What could be wrong with this sandwich? (I’m aware…don’t tell me, I’m choosing to ignore  the whiteness of the bread and I have no problem with all that cheese.)

If you need a change of pace, try it, you’ll like it!

    Joined your site and trying that sandwich tonight. If it tastes half as good as it looks, I’ll be in paradise at dinner. My garden has an abundance of tomatoes and basil, right now. I’m all set…lol.

      Fay, I hope you love it! I may send you a question about my basil. It isn’t looking right. (But I’m a terrible gardener so it may just be that it’s trying to grow in my yard instead of someone else’s!)

      Ha ha, no Alice, I’m actually not big on combining foods like that. Like those desserts you see online that are actually 4 desserts. Just one is good for me! Glad you stopped by and that you didn’t get attacked by a giant lasagna noodle! ;)

  2. says

    Yes, please! Since I just went shopping and got ingredients for lasagna rolls, I can use the leftovers for this yummy deliciousness.

    Seriously? How did I miss this recipe? Wow! This looks so amazing and like just the comfort food I want when it’s 8 degrees outside with -20 windchill. I’m adding this to my menu for next week. :)
