Grilled Pesto Cheese Bun

Pesto is so awesome; it must be food for the Gods. I did not try it until I was in my mid-twenties, and let me tell you – I was bummed to find out what a delicious treat I had been missing out on. I am also bummed to report that I still have not made fresh pesto, totally lame since I have a kick-butt food processor. But anyway, Christopher Ranch is probably happy about my lameness, since they are the only brand of Pesto I buy. :) If you have not checked out Christopher Ranch before, I would suggest you drop by their website and see the excellent variety of goods. (Nope, I did not get anything for saying all that – I just really like their products.)

The Grilled Cheese Bun was not an original idea, adding the pesto was. ;) My son ordered a grilled cheese sandwich at a burger joint and this is how it came. I thought it was a genius idea as soon as I saw it. So the first time I ran out of bread and had a “cheesy” craving, I busted out the hamburgers buns… and noticed the pesto while I was in the fridge – might as well grab that too. Haha

These are real easy. Just butter both buns on the inside and cook as you would a grilled cheese sandwich. I added pesto but next time I think I want to include some sliced meat, onions and tomato. I am hungry now. Enjoy!
 I also want to mention that I received my first Foodzie box... I am totally in love! What a great idea and what great products! I HAVE to share what I got in my Foodzie Box:

  • Dried Pineapple from Peeled Snacks
  • 2, Traditional Alfajores from Dulce Caramel Co.
  • Lemon Poppyseed and Almond Biscotti from Biscotti Bari
  • 2, Fresh Herb Sea Salts from Woody’s Gourmet
  • Pure Southern Iced Tea from Pluff Iced Tea
  • Classic Seaweed Snack from SeaSnax
I am completely satisfied and I can’t wait for next month’s box, it seriously feels a little like Christmas. Yay! :)
(Oh, and I did not get anything for saying all that about Foodzie either - I just really feel like sharing tonight.)
