Meatless Monday - Duo Grilled Cheese

Over the years I’ve had many grilled cheese sandwiches.  Starting with the commodity cheese my mother would get from the social services to the six cheese Tuscan grilled cheese at Mimi’s in San Diego the gamut of the grilled cheese is undoubtedly the widest of any sandwich.

From a vegetarian prospective this would be considered a Lacto-Ovo Vegetarian dish.  Meaning we do use ingredients from animal sources and would not be suitable for a Vegan.  I have found that eating processed foods, or foods with GMOs is more harmful in my opinion.  So I would be willing to eat cheese, which is an animal product, but avoid Tofu that’s non-organic, with no animal contents due to the probability of Genetic Modification.

I like to slice the bread right in the middle and get four very even slices of bread.  My local market has Organic bread available so I use this.  My basil comes from my garden.  I had four large plants this year and was able to dry and save about 3 bottles.

This is one of my favorite dishes, either eaten alone or with a nice bowl of tomato soup.

Did you make this?  Have a new idea?  Let me know.

Namaste & Blessed Be
