Green Grilled Cheese (vegetarian)

Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich

2 slices bread
2 – 3 tablespoons pesto
2 slices cheese
handful fresh baby spinach
¼ avocado, sliced
fresh asparagus, in season (and it’s in here in Chestertown right now!)
olive oil, butter
cracked, black pepper & salt

I was struck by the intensity and beauty of the sandwich as soon as I saw the green grilled cheese online. Yum!

Because I have Commencement guests arriving tomorrow, because asparagus is in season, and because my guests are not egg eaters, I needed to go in a different direction than normal. I usually do vegetarian breakfasts, but eggs are a staple. I can use one go-to for one breakfast, the mashed potato/cheese/fried Vadalia onion crepe, and waffles on another day, but I needed another fun menu – which was when I saw the picture. Perfect!

Fairly easy (if you have the pesto made ahead of time) and delicious. Combined with the offerings of fresh fruit – (strawberries are also in), yogurt, homemade granola, and a few cinnamon buns thrown into the mix, my menus will be complete. Yes. Just right.

Hope your spring is bouncing about nicely, too!
