If you know me, you know that I’m a huge grilled cheese fan. While I’m always game for a classic grilled cheese with melty cheddar, I’ve been getting creative with my grilled cheese recipes lately to switch up my work-from-home lunch routine. 

 

Roasted veggies are a staple in my home. There are usually veggies on a sheet pan for at least one meal each week, and that often means leftovers. I love making this Leftover Roasted Vegetable Grilled Cheese recipe when I’ve got a small amount of leftover roasted veggies from last night’s dinner.

Ingredients you’ll need to make this Leftover Roasted Vegetable Grilled Cheese

 

Whole grain bread: I love using sprouted whole grain bread, but any type will do! 

 

Leftover roasted vegetables: I love using peppers, zucchini and mushroom but any combination goes! 

 

Pesto: this will add a ton of flavour to your grilled cheese and pairs well with roasted veggies.

 

Butter: for grilling

 

Mozzarella cheese: you can swap this for any mild-flavoured cheese. Goat cheese would also be delicious here!

How to make it: 

 

Butter one side of each slice of bread, and spread pesto on the other side (this will be the inside) of each slice. 

 

Assemble the sandwich by layering shredded mozzarella cheese and roasted vegetables on the pesto side of one slice of bread. Top with the second slice and grill on a pan or panini press until the bread has toasted and cheese has melted evenly. 

 

Enjoy! 💚
