Today has been a sequence of good things. I woke up. Naturally. This never happens. Then, I convinced myself to exercise. Once again...a rare occurrence. Afterwards, I was all full of endorphins and decided to try a new recipe.
I love grilled cheese.
Tim has a slight obsession with marinara sauce, and dipping things in it. We go through about 3 cans of it every week, regardless of whether or not we have an Italian dish that requires it.
Have you ever been to BJ's Pizza? West-coasters, you know what I'm talking about. East-coasters, if you don't know what I'm referring to, I am so, so sorry. I admit that I took one bite of this before packing it for Tim's lunch, and the finished product tastes like a BJ's pizza.
It's a cheesy-gooey (yet crispy) mess-of-a-dish. When I pulled it apart, the cheese stayed in tact for well over 2 ft. It's that cheesy!
This is also easily pack-able for a quick lunch. And it's the perfect comfort food for this cool, fall day.
- 2 slices sourdough bread
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/4 cup milk
- Italian seasoning
- 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, or 2 slices mozzarella cheese
- Marinara sauce
Combine the egg, milk, Italian seasoning, and a dash of salt and pepper. Whisk together.
Pour the olive oil in a pan over medium heat.
Add the butter and wait until melted.
Dip one slice of bread in the egg mixture.
Place in the pan, keeping it on medium heat.
Top with mozzarella cheese.
Dip the second piece of bread in the egg mixture and place on top. Cook each side for about 2 minutes, being careful not to burn it.
Serve with marinara sauce.
Love and warm, fall recipes,
