These are amongst my other latest and greatest addictions (alongside brown rice bowls, cake decorating and knitting). Katie made these for us for lunch one day while we stayed with them in Vancouver. And for whatever reason, the small changes she made to a regular old grilled cheese sandwich made these delicious. So delicious that I've been eating them maybe 4 or so days a week for lunch lately. Until this obsession passes, at least.
A tip to all of my readers out there: I recommend that you not breastfeed your baby while making these sandwiches. You might just slam her foot into the drawer as you shut it, leading to many tears. Or perhaps touch her foot to the hot Griddler. Good thing she was wearing socks! And that I noticed it right away!! Didn't even shed a tear for that one. Here's hoping no one calls child protective services after reading this post...
I also recommend that you unplug your Griddler once you are done with it. And before leaving the house. For three hours.
As with any grilled cheese sandwich, these are super easy to make. Perfect for those baby busy days.
The trick to making these more delicious is the following:
butter or margarine
whole-wheat sourdough bread, or any other good quality bread
No complicated tricks here. Obviously, you butter the bread a bit, put in the cheddar and then add one basil leaf. And grill. Easy as that.
My mouth is watering as I type this. I did not make one for lunch today....
