Garlic Veggie Grilled Cheese

This garlic veggie grilled cheese is the perfect combination of traditional comfort food and veggies! I’d say it’s a grown up grilled cheese but the truth is, my 2 year old loves it too. 

Veggies, sharp cheddar cheese and garlic unite to make the most delicious grilled cheese I’ve ever had. It’s so simple and so worth it.

In the south, we eat lots of cheese, and I’m not mad about it but I had to give one of my favorite childhood recipes some extra nutritional value. The mushrooms, eggplant and zucchini add essential vitamins, cancer fighting antioxidants and lots and lots of fiber. If you’re unaware of the health benefits of a high fiber diet consider this:

In short, adding fiber to your diet regularly can vastly improve your overall health, and when it tastes this good, there’s no reason not to!

    Ingredients
    1. 1/3 cup eggplant (cubed)
    2. 1/3 cup zucchini (cubed)
    3. 1/3 cup mushrooms (chopped)
    4. 1 Tablespoon olive oil
    5. 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    6. 1 teaspoon of salt
    7. 1 teaspoon of pepper
    8. 1 teaspoon of italian seasoning
    9. 4 slices of sharp white cheddar (I bought a block and sliced it myself)
    10. 2 ciabatta rolls (or your favorite bread)
    Instructions
    1. Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet. Add eggplant and zucchini into skillet and cook until soft (about 2 minutes).
    2. Meanwhile open up your ciabatta rolls, place on a baking sheet and cover each side with sharp white cheddar cheese. Place in the oven and let cook until cheese is melted and bread is warm (approximately 4 minutes).
    3. Add mushrooms to skillet and sauté for 1 minute. Add garlic, salt, pepper and italian seasoning and sauté until fragrant (about 1 minute). Remove veggies from heat. Remove bread from oven and top with veggies. Put the top on your sandwich* and enjoy the cheesy, garlicky goodness!
    Notes
    1. *If you like you can put the sandwich back in the skillet and brown the outsides to make it extra crunchy and delicious!
