Chicken Parmesan Grilled Cheese Sandwich

April 15, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

I don’t make chicken Parmesan like a normal person – I stuff it with pepperoni and I don’t bread it. So I decided to further bastardize the classic dish and turn it into a grilled cheese sandwich. The resulting lunch was quite tasty, but not spectacular.

I wanted it to be gooier. Next time, I think I’ll make a pesto out of the tomatoes and use a melty cheese like mozzarella or provolone, with just a light sprinkling of shredded Parmesan for bite. Despite the less-than-perfect texture, the flavors are great. The garlic powder and Italian seasoning really makes it.

  1. After reading that part about pepperoni, I keep thinking that you’re going to make a pizza grilled cheese sandwich next.

      I’m trying – I promise! There’s something up with the grilled cheese posts that WordPress doesn’t like. Every time I try to insert the link code, WordPress freezes up and locks me out. I’ll keep trying!
