This morning I decided that I would make bruchetta for lunch. The tomatoes and basil wouldn't last much longer and I wasn't sure how long the bread would be good. When I checked the bread.. it was sporting a few spots of blue. I found this to be slightly inconvenient since bread is one of the essential parts of bruchetta. WELL, in times like these.. it forces us to get a little creative.
Thankfully, the Food Network came to my rescue. One of the shows this morning was making grilled cheese with salsa. PERFECT! I checked my refrigerator and I had the makings for a perfect grilled cheese.. including Muenster cheese - a great suggestion from a friend and reader.
Bruchetta Grilled Cheese
- 4 to 5 small or medium tomatoes (I used red, orange and yellow. Great fall colors!)
- 1 TBSP fresh basil
- 1/4 cup minced sweet onion
- 2 small cloves of garlic.. or one large clove
- 1 TBSP Olive Oil
- 4 slices of Muenster cheese
- 4 slices of bread
- Butter (I used light)
- Salt & Pepper
|I started by mixing the tomatoes, garlic, basil, onion and EVOO into a small bowl.|
Add salt and pepper to taste.
|Slice, serve, enjoy!|
