Tomato Basil Pesto Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Tomato basil pesto grilled cheese is simply out of this world. I often call it “The Ultimate Sandwich.” Made with a delightful combination of sun dried tomato pesto, mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil, your guest will rant and rave and ask for the recipe without a doubt. 

This recipe can be changed in a few ways. First, mozzarella, if you’re not fond of it, can be substituted for just about any cheese. An old sharp cheddar is always nice, but feel free to use the cheese of your choice.

I enjoy  fresh tomatoes on my sandwich but onions, ham, or anything like that, can be added, as well. Pepperoni can be used to make it more like a pizza if you wish.

Fresh basil leaves  give the sandwich a nice touch. If you’re are not a basil fan, any kind of herb or spices can be added.
