Grilled Goat Cheese & Arugula Sandwiches Recipe

Publisher Photo
To create a more “grown-up” grilled cheese sandwich, I threw in tangy goat cheese and peppery arugula. I enjoy a similar combination on pizza, and it worked here, too! —Jess Apfe, Berkeley, California

This sounded so great, that I did not change a thing when I made it. I used used store-bought sour dough bread and it was fantastic!

Desmma 15 , real sourdough is hard to find in California, but there are some good brands. San Luis Sourdough is delicious and the best I've had!

Unfortunately, those of us who don't live in California don't have access to REAL sourdough bread; and I really miss it!
