Grilled Cheese Week: Pesto, Mozzarella, & Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Yum

It's time for another themed week here on the blog! Grilled cheese sandwiches are extremely versatile and they are perfect with soup for the cooler fall and cold winter weather. I also have a favor to ask anyone browsing on a mobile device - since I can't get the pin it button to work at the top of the page, I installed a social media share set on the footer of each post. If any of you mobile users can pin using that, could you leave me a comment if it's successful? I would greatly appreciate it!

It's Grilled Cheese Week - check out these Pesto, Mozzarella, & Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwiches!

A few short months ago, I fell in love.

I fell in love with pesto.. And it has been an amazing whirlwind of happiness for these few months we've been together. Then I found out about pesto, mozzarella, and tomato together...and I can't say that I'm disappointed in the least with this trio. This grilled cheese sandwich is probably my favorite of all-time. Fresh mozzarella is incredible on grilled cheese because you get such a great ratio of gooey cheese. Basil and tomato are just icing on the cake, so to speak :)
