Adult Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Arugula Pesto Grilled Cheese

Because you're never too old (or too healthy) to enjoy a grilled cheese, right!? Sometimes you just need some good, hearty comfort food. These used to be my favorite food when I was a kid - I lived on them. I know, not exactly healthy, but who's all that healthy as a kid anyway?

Anyway, this is the grown up version of the grilled cheese. I like to try and add greens to every meal especially if it's a not-so-healthy type meal, like a grilled cheese. This one is filled with grass-fed mozzarella, homemade pesto, arugula, and gluten free bed. Sounds pretty darn good right? Read on below for the recipe (it's a extremely simple one if you couldn't guess).

Arugula Pesto Grilled Cheese


  • 2 slices gluten-free bread (I like this kind)
  • 2 tbsp homemade pesto
  • 2-3 slices mozzarella cheese (or any type of cheese you'd like)
  • handful of arugula
  • pinch of salt & pepper
  • ghee


  1. Heat a small pan over medium heat.
  2. Butter one side of each slice of bread with the ghee (the sides that will touch the pan), and spread the pesto over the two opposite sides of the bread.
  3. Add the slices of cheese and handful of arugula to the sandwich and put the two pieces of bread together.
  4. Place in pan and cook each side until lightly brown/crispy.
  5. Enjoy that ooey, gooey, goodness. YUM!
