The Shopping List:

  • 4 slices of your favorite whole wheat bread
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 deli slices of provolone cheese
  • 2 deli slices of fontina cheese
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced white onion*
  • 1/3 cup store bought roasted red peppers (rinsed,drained,thinly sliced)*

*If you don’t like onions and peppers, you may leave them out, but try adding veggies you do like! I also like to add avocados, fresh spinach and tomatoes into my grilled cheese sandwiches!  You can even use some homemade pesto for extra yumminess. 


The prep:

  • Heat a medium sized skillet on medium/low heat. Add one tablespoon of olive oil
  • When hot, add your thinly sliced white onion
  • Cook onions until they are slightly brown, then add roasted peppers.
  • Cook until peppers are hot then remove from heat
  • Lay 4 pieces of bread onto a cutting board
  • Brush the top of each piece with olive oil
  • In a large pan, apply medium heat
  • When the pan is hot place your bread into the pan olive oil side down
  • Add one slice of cheese to each piece of bread
  • Add your onion and pepper mixture onto two of the pieces of bread
  • Fold bread over to create a sandwich
  • When golden brown and melted on each side, remove from pan


The fun part:

  • Slice sandwiches in half and share with your best friend
  • Enjoy immediately
