cheese-pesto

Serves 4

  • 8 slices bread of your choice
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 8 thin slices Swiss, Muenster, Colby or Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup basil pesto
  1. Prepare the Cobb with the Griddle accessory heat for 7 minutes with the dome on.
  2. On a peice of bread place a slice of cheese (so that most of the bread is covered) followed by a tablespoon of pesto and a final peice of cheese.
  3. Top with another slice of bread
  4. Butter the top of the bread spreading more thickly around the edges and less in the center. This will prevent the edges from burning before the center is crisp
  5. Repeat with remaining ingredients
  6. Place the bread, butter-side down onto the heated griddle, and butter the top slice of bread in the same way.
  7. Replace the dome lid
  8. Bake for another 3-4 minutes and flip these sandwiches
