Orange cheese isn’t even my favorite in grilled cheese. Perhaps I think of a grilled cheese sandwich because the flowers are an incredibly warm color — they bring my mind to melting cheese? Who knows! What I do know is that somehow these beautiful flowers led to this ultra fantastic grilled cheese sandwich recipe!
Gruyère is one of my favorite cheeses — especially for melting. Not all cheeses melt the same, you know! Gruyère melts evenly and smoothly, spreading its sweet-nutty flavor throughout this delicious sandwich.
If I’d had any of my Spinach-Kale Pesto left, I definitely would have added that here — but the basil leaves are fantastic, too! And it’s always a good idea to have a lot of caramelized onions on hand (good thing we made a batch yesterday)!
