INSPIRED RECIPE


MICHAEL_portratit.jpg
Everyone loves the combo of grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup—so why not combine the two in each ooey-gooey bite? The original recipe from Cooking Light calls for fresh basil, garlic and roasted tomatoes. I thought to use our Tomato ‘Nduja instead since it already combines these 3 fresh essential ingredients + a nice level of heat bringing this sandwich to a whole new deliciously-spicy-gooey level.

PREPARATION

Combine mayonnaise, cream cheese and cheddar in a medium bowl. Mix well to combine (mixture will be very thick).

Spread Tomato 'Nduja over each of 8 bread slices, then top with the cheese mixture (about 2 tablespoons). Put the sandwiches together and lightly coat the outsides with olive oil. 

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil; swirl to coat. Place sandwiches in pan; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned (do not flip). Remove sandwiches from pan. Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil; swirl to coat. Turn sandwiches over, and add to pan; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned and cheese melts. Cut in half; serve immediately.
