Flavor From Scratch: Goat Cheese & Pesto Grilled Cheese


Goat Cheese & Pesto Grilled Cheese

I first had goat cheese on a grilled cheese when I went out to a local restaurant and WOW was it good. Grilled cheese is gooey and crunchy and delicious by itself. Goat cheese is tangy and creamy and salty. Combined, this is like a grilled cheese that got promoted to grilled cheese boss. The boss of grilled cheeses.

Oh wait...how could I forget about the pesto???? In addition to the gooey, crunchy, delicious, tangy, salty, creamy grilled cheese I already had, I added pesto. Yep. You heard me. This grilled cheese is out of this world!! Specifically, I added my carrot top & basil pesto but you can also make this with regular pesto or good quality pesto from the store.

I'm going to be honest. This is barely a recipe. It's more of a suggestion of how I did it. Once you have the ingredients you can totally play with the proportions to your taste. Since it was so delicious I just felt the need to share! If you come up with your own awesome combination of grilled cheese, let me know!

prep time: 5-10 minutes, cook time: 5 minutes
makes: 1 grilled cheese sandwich

  • 2 slices of multi-grain or whole wheat bread (I like mine with a good, crunchy crust)
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • 1-2 tablespoons pesto
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
  • 2-3 slices of Gouda cheese
  • tomato slices
  • spinach leaves

  1. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. 
  2. While the pan is heating, spread butter on one side of each piece of bread.
  3. On the non-buttered side of one piece of bread, spread the pesto.
  4. Add cheeses, tomato, and spinach on top of the pesto. I like to sandwich the tomato and spinach between cheese so that the cheese melts all around it and keeps it in. 
  5. Top with the other piece of bread, buttered side up. 
  6. Place the sandwich in the pan and cook until the bread becomes toasted and the cheese starts to melt. Flip and repeat. 

Add your own combination of veggies, cheeses, and sauces to make it your own. This is just how I made mine!
