Marinated Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Marinated Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese Sandwich

April is national grilled cheese sandwich month and I have been enjoying grilled cheese sandwiches all month long. I never seem to tire of grilled cheese sandwiches and I always enjoy playing around with new ones. This marinated roasted red pepper grilled cheese sandwiches was definitely one of favourites from this month! I started out by marinating some roasted red peppers in some balsamic vinegar, garlic, onions and herbs overnight to build up some flavour and then I threw them into a sandwich along with some fresh basil and cheese and grilled it up until the cheese melted. The first time I made this grilled cheese sandwich I went with a goat cheese which was an absolutely divine combination of sweet and tangy with the basil adding an amazing breath of freshness. While I was enjoying the sandwich I could not help but think that a fresh mozzarella version would also be good and with that thought, along with the desire to make another batch of marinated roasted red peppers to snack on, I had to try it. The marinated roasted red pepper and mozzarella grilled cheese sandwich was also fantastic with the milder flavours of the fresh mozzarella allowing for the flavours of the marinated roasted red peppers to shine through a bit more. Now I am torn, both options are so good!
