Grilled Cheese Sandwich on Wheat/Rye Bread

CheeseSandwich-1thumbCheese sandwiches don’t always have to be made with white bread. This recipe uses a wheat & rye bread with all kind of seeds worked into it.

  • cut bread in thin slices
  • butter one side
  • smear mayonnaise on the other side
  • add shredded cheese mix on the buttered side
  • add second slice of bread (buttered side down)
  • heat up skillet with butter or sunflower oil
  • fry sandwiches on each side until brown

 

Hint: I like to add a lid to the frying pan. This increases the heat and “bakes” the sandwiches nicely. The mayonnaise will make the sandwich extremely crunchy.

Tomato Basil Salad

Tomato Basil Salad

This salad is always a favorite. An easy to make colorful addition to your meals or as stand alone lunch on a hot day.

  • Cut down roma and cherry tomatoes
  • Chop fresh basil, parsley, chives, and onions; add to tomatoes
  • Extra virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar
  • season with fresh ground pepper, garlic salt, and sea salt
  • let it sit for a few minutes giving the oil, vinegar, and spices to cure the tomatoes

A little hint: Easy on the parsley, chives, and onions. They dominate in taste and will cover the fresh basil’s rather fine aroma.
