With our overflow of tomatoes from the garden and my love for grilled cheese, I’m definitely going to make this tonight.  Update: it was delicious.


4 slices of Pumpernickel Bread
4 slices of Provolone Cheese
1 Roma Tomato, sliced thin
1-2 Mini Bella Mushrooms, sliced thin
2 tablespoons Pesto, homemade or store bought (one tablespoon per sandwich)
Butter, room temperature


Butter one side of each slice of bread. Lay butter side down onto a preheated pan over medium/medium low. Layer with first with; a slice of cheese, tomato, mushroom, and pesto, the second slice of provolone and second slice of bread (butter side up). Cover with lid for a minute or two. Flip and repeat with the lid until both sides are crispy to touch! This recipe makes two grilled cheese sammie’s.
