Classic grilled cheese sandwiches with a kick. Delicious! These are great with a bowl of tomato soup with a little basil added.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 8 (1 ounce) slices bread
- 4 slices Cheddar cheese
- 1 large tomato, sliced
- 2 serrano peppers, seeded and thinly sliced
- 2 teaspoons dried basil
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons butter
Butter one side of each slice of bread, and place 4 of the slices butter-side down on a griddle over medium heat.
On each piece of bread, place one slice of cheese, 1 slice of tomato, and a few slices of serrano pepper. Sprinkle dried basil and salt and pepper to taste. Top each sandwich with a slice of buttered bread, butter-side up.
Grill sandwiches until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes each side.
