Carson's Little Gourmet Sandwiches

I know, I know, all of my posts are about food lately! It seems like when I'm the most broke, I'm more obsessed with food. I think it because I'm afraid I'm not going to have enough or something. Anyway here's another great little recipe that my son, Carson, actually made up. At first I thought it sounded weird because it's a melted cheese sandwich with produce on it. I was thinking my lettuce would get soggy, but it didn't, so okay here's the recipe....

Carson's Grilled Cheese Veggie Sandwich

2 pieces of bread (any kind, I like sourdough)
Slices of Pepper Jack Cheese (or any cheese you like)
Butter or Marg. (I like "Smart" because there's no trans fats)
Tomato slices
Lettuce (crispy is good... iceberg, romaine hearts...)
Salt and Pepper

Place the cheese slices between the bread slices
Butter the outsides of the sandwich/bread pieces
Grill in a frying pan on med-high on either side till golden brown
Pull sandwich apart, place tomato and lettuce between bread slices
Salt and Pepper
Put sandwich back together

The flavor of the melted cheese and the tomatoe and crispy lettuce together is soooooo good. I didn't even want to try it but my son, Carson (18yrs), talked me into it. Of course, he also talked me in to trying a peanut butter and pickle sandwich too. Amazingly enough it was pretty good! No, I'm not pregnant!

Eat up!
