Last Year this was my post for National Grilled Cheese Day! Fiscalini Farmstead Artisan Cheese, Alvarado St. Bread & Home-Made Tomato Pesto

I’m re-posting because I still love it!

Celebrate national Grilled Cheese Day!  Once you make this sandwich, you’ll be celebrating a lot more.  The wonderful silky rich nutty cheese, the fabulous salame flavors, the super intense bit of pesto, the texture of the sprouted bread, and the incredible sweet butter all work together to make this the zen of comfort food.
