Trying to get your kids or teens (or husband, or self) to eat more veggies? These grilled cheese sandwiches are a hit with all ages. For a more complete meal, serve with a side salad or tomato or roasted pepper soup.
12 ounces of extra old cheddar cheese
1 bell pepper, cut into strips and roasted until caramelized/blackening on the edges
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of Hellman's or homemade mayonnaise
Good sandwich bread
A few tablespoons of butter
Break the cheese into large chunks and put it in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles coarse gravel.
Add peppers and garlic to food processor. Process until mixture is finely chopped.
Add mayonnaise, and process until the mixture is smooth. Put into a container for refrigerator storage.
Lightly butter both sides of the bread, and preheat a frying pan over medium-low heat.
Spread about 1/3 c. cheese mixture onto one of the toasted bread surfaces. Place the other slice of bread onto the cheese.
Butter the top of the sandwich (for frying), then place the sandwich butter-side-down into the preheated pan. Once the sandwich is in the pan, butter the other side.
Cook sandwich until both sides are toasted and cheese is melty.
