Grilled "Cheese"

I wouldn’t normally post a recipe for grilled cheese.  Most people know how to make grilled cheese.  But this one is  a bit different.  It’s from my Deceptively Delicious cookbook.  I did some last minute change of meal plans yesterday.  I had taken squash out of the freezer for risotto…but then didn’t feel like making it.  So I was trying to think of what else to do with the squash.  I found this recipe.  It worked great!  We all enjoyed it.  A delicous grilled cheese…with some veggies added 🙂  The funny part is that it looks like they are made with American cheese.  In reality all of the cheese I used was white.  I didn’t follow the recipe exactly.  I just shredded a mix of cheeses (cheddar, parm and mozzarella) and mixed in some squash and a little softened butter.  I didn’t measure anything.  I made a bit more than we really needed, so our sandwiches were pretty full.  But still delicious!  I will definitely try this again.  You can probably do it with quite a few different veggies, depending on what color you want your cheese to be 🙂  The recipe says sweet potatoes or squash.  I’ll post the original recipe…minus the reduced fat cheese and “trans fat free margarine spread”…shudder 😛

Grilled “Cheese”

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or any cheese you like)
1/2 cup sweet potato or butternut squash puree
1 Tbsp. softened butter
1/4 tsp. salt
4 slices whole wheat bread

Mix the cheese, puree, butter and salt.

Spread on two slices of bread.  Top with the other two slices.  Coat a griddle with butter.  Cook sandwiches on both sides until golden and the filling is melted.
