Green Goddess Grilled Cheese

Last weekend I made my absolute favorite grilled cheese. Over the years I've experimented with grilled cheese ingredients (here's a throwback for ya) and finally have landed on perfection. I started with the delicious grilled cheese recipe that Lisa made for us earlier this year and slightly adapted it. Her tasty sandwiches totally converted my cooking method from a skillet to a...wait for it...GRILL! Yes, a grill! Fair warning, once you make the switch you'll never go back!
Just look at that!!! I can't get over how delicious every single layer is of this perfect sandwich -- so much goodness smushed between two pieces of bread.
I wanted so badly to capture this blog-worthy sandwich, sliced in half and perfectly layered on a plate screaming to be photographed. However, I was so impatient that I polished off my sandwich while running around the backyard shepherding my kids inside for dinner. And then, at all at time low (or high if you look at it like me), hours later I swiped the cold scraps from Caroline's plate and devoured those too. Whether fresh off the grill or as cold triangles mutilated by toddlers, you'll enjoy this sandwich down to the very last bite...

Green Goddess Grilled Cheese 
Adapted from Lisa's recipe

4 slices Pepperidge Farm Oatmeal Bread
¼ cup pesto
2 slices mozzarella
2 slices provolone
½ cup spinach
1 avocado, sliced
¼ cup goat cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoon butter

Yields 2 sandwiches. 

Spread pesto over one side of each slices bread. Layer with a slice of mozzarella, a slice of provolone spinach, avocado, and sprinkle with goat cheese. Top with remaining bread slice and press to seal. Lightly butter both sides of bread and grill over medium heat until cheese is melted (approximately 4-5 minutes). Slice and serve.
