Obsession: Grilled Cheese

I cannot get enough of grilled cheese lately.  When I was a kid, someone turned me on to white bread and Kraft cheeses singles, which I preferred despite the fact that my mom was was serving me whole grains and real cheese.  I kept up with the Kraft singles on my grilled cheese as a grown up, so they were on a very limited rotation - good but not great.

Recently I decided to try real mozzarella and started cooking them in olive oil instead of butter (if you still want it to taste like butter, you can melt a teensy bit into the oil).  Oh. my. gee.  I seriously want to eat these every day.  Sometimes I've fancied them up, here are some of my favorite grilled cheeses:

Caprese Panini from With Style & Grace
Okayyyy, it says Panini, but I turn this into a grilled cheese ;)

Spinach, Goat Cheese, & Pesto from ExPress-O

Bacon Guac Grilled Cheese from Closet Cooking

  3. I love grilled cheese, still eat it on a regular basis, but I am loving these fancy updates! I've never tried cooking them in olive oil but that's a great idea. I'm thinking mozzarella and tomato...delicious and can't wait to try!
