I’m a total cheese lover! I bet you could tell! And, I bet you are too!
I’m a Real Cheese Person. This recipe for Three Cheese Pesto Avocado Grilled Cheese calls for 100% real, natural cheese. None of that Pasteurized Process Cheese Food here! Did you know that Pasteurized Process Cheese Food (sometimes known as American singles) is only required to contain 51% real cheese?
For this Grilled Cheese with avocado you can use any homemade pesto.
Or try store bought pesto. I’ve found there are some great tasting pestos at the store now.
I tend to like ones with less oil in them, so try a few out and see how you like them. Find your favorite brand.
Cook it low and slow
The really big trick to a great Grilled Cheese is that you have patience and cook it low and slow.
That way all the heat gets into the cheese to get it all nice and melty.
If you heat it on high, you risk burning the bread before the cheese melts.
Now that you know the trick, have fun and enjoy your Grilled Cheese!
