April is National Grilled Cheese Month and I have a tasty bolognese grilled cheese to share with you! Whenever I make my favourite bolognese sauce (a tasty meat and tomato sauce) I like to make extra to use in recipes like this sandwich! This is a pretty normal grilled cheese with bread that is buttered, and filled with cheese before grilling it to golden brown, crispy perfection with the melted cheese just busting out into your mouth as you take a bite! The cheese used in this sandwich is a combination of provolone, mozzarella and parmesan, yum! In addition to the cheese inside the sandwich, I like press parmesan cheese onto the butter on the outside of the bread which melts and then grills until golden brown crispy and oh so good! It’s like that cheese that oozes out of the sandwich that browns on the side of the sandwich, you know, the best part of a grilled cheese, only on purpose instead of by accident! The final piece of this sandwich is a few leaves of fresh basil! This bolognese grilled cheese sandwich is the perfect way to celebrate
Press the parmesan into the butter on the bread before grilling.
Just look at that cheese!
