Asparagus Grilled Cheese
The classic grilled cheese just got an upgrade! Roasted asparagus grilled cheese sandwiches filled with gooey Swiss and Parmesan on a buttery toasted bread.
- 8 oz asparagus washed and trimmed of woody ends (thinner is best)
- 2 tsp olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 8 slices of sourdough or french bread in a round loaf
- dijon mustard
- shredded Parmesan cheese
- 8 slices Swiss or Baby Swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place asparagus on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle olive oil over asparagus then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until asparagus is crisp-tender and started to turn slightly brown in places. Remove from oven and cut the spears in half to fit your sandwich bread.
In the meantime, butter one side of each slice of bread.
Turn over four of the slices and lightly spread dijon mustard on them. Sprinkle a little bit of parmesan cheese on top of the dijon on those four slices as well. Next place one slice of swiss cheese on top of dijon.
Then place 4-6 asparagus spears on top of swiss cheese.
Sprinkle a little parmesan cheese over the asparagus. Then place another slice of swiss cheese on top. Place buttered bread slice (buttered side up) on top of cheese.
