pepperoni & mozzarella 'grilled cheese'

Spicy pepperoni, gooey mozzarella, bright, fresh basil...

No, I'm not talking about pizza...  I'm talking about a grilled cheese sandwich!

What?  Grilled cheese??

Isn't that supposed to be a slice of american cheese (or maybe cheddar if you're feeling fancy) on white bread?

Not in this house it's not!

Grilled cheese, in my book, is just about anything stuffed between two slices of buttered bread and grilled in a pan!  (With cheese of course!)

Today, that takes the form of pepperoni pizza.  Yummm...

(This vague recipe makes 1 sandwich...  alter to your needs!)

Pepperoni & Mozzarella Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

2 slices sourdough bread
sliced pepperoni
thin-sliced good-quality mozzarella cheese
fresh basil, optional

Heat a large skillet on medium heat.

Butter one side of each of the slices of bread.  Place one slice, butter side down, on the hot skillet and then immediately layer the insides...  beginning and ending with cheese.  Place the second slice of bread, butter side up, on top.

Once the bottom slice is golden brown and the cheese is mostly melted, flip the sandwich over to toast the other side to golden.

Serve with a simple green salad!
