This caprese grilled cheese sandwich is loaded with melted mozzarella, chicken, and marina sauce. It’s an easy comfort food dinner recipe!
Hello! Is it seriously Tuesday? I am so behind! I went to my first food blogger conference this weekend in Portland. It was my first trip away from my kids, and I think it was good for all of us. The guys got a couple days of man time, and I got to make some connections and learn a thing or two. It was nice to not hear “Mommy” 2,351 times per day while I was gone, and I finally got to meet my dear friend Jen from Yummy Healthy Easy.
Anyway, Sunday I was right back to reality, the reality that summer is here. My oldest is out of school, and my youngest started a fever Sunday night, so he couldn’t go to school either. As it turns out, my productivity decreases 100% with both kids home. I wanted to share a dessert recipe yesterday, but I just couldn’t make it happen. We’ll have to skip right to these grilled cheese sandwiches instead.
Aren’t dinners like these great for when you are busy and worn out (AKA weary)? You can whip these up for the family in no time. I happen to have a waffle iron, so I like to grill my sandwiches in there. If you don’t have one, you can either toast these open faced in a 375 degree oven (like this) or grill them in a pan, whichever you prefer. I actually don’t love making grilled cheese sandwiches the traditional way in a hot skillet because the bread cooks faster than the filling melts, so I end up with burned bread or cold cheese in the middle. If you are more of a skillet sandwich master, then go for it!
Enjoy your sandwiches and your week. I’ll bring you a roundup tomorrow and easy dinner recipe on Thursday, so check back then!
