Pesto Mozzarella Grilled Cheese - Recipe

This is my FAVORITE Grilled Cheese Sandwich.  I have made this recipe for awhile now that I don't remember the original recipe.  Original recipe came from Tyler off Food Network. 

Pesto Mozzarella Grilled Cheesed Sandwich
-Sour Dough Bread
-Pesto (homemade or store bought - we use the Pine Nuts, Garlic kind of Pesto)
-Fresh Mozzarella Slices (in a pinch I have used shredded mozz. cheese, just as yummy)

-Butter the outside of two slices of bread.
-Smear as much or as little of Pesto you want on the bread (I smear lots but only on one piece of bread)
-Layer cheese on top of Pesto.  Again as much or as less as you want.
-Close your sandwich with Butter side out (yeah goober here put butter inside once and was wondering why my bread wasn't toasting)
-Heat Griddle or Cast Iron Skillet
-When griddle is nice and hot, lay sandwich (butter side down) on griddle and cook to your liking of golden toasted bread. 
-Flip and repeat for other side of bread.

This is a little too Golden Brown and what will
happen if you heat the griddle too hot....still
yummy none the less.


  1. This sandwich could be in our future very soon! It looks delish!

  2. Let me know what you think when you try it!! Truly one of my favorites.

  3. I love pesto grilled cheese too....especially with a bowl of homemade tomato soup. Yum!

  4. Jen these would be good with Tomato Soup but I am not a fan of it :( However being an adult now maybe I should try it again. I don't think I have ever had homemade Tomato soup before.
