Whole-wheat grilled cheese with broccoli rabe and cave-aged Gruyère

Whole wheat grilled cheese with broccoli rabe and cave-aged Gruyère

Grilled cheese sandwiches are simply addictive—even when they’re as basic as a slab of cheese melted between two pieces of bread. But I love to play with the classic recipe and give it an unusual twist or two.

Here the grilled cheeses are stuffed with sautéed broccoli rabe (what better way to eat your greens?!) and layered with a bit of aged Gruyère, just enough to bind the sandwiches together as the cheese melts.

As a last touch, I like to serve the sandwiches with this tomato coulis with shallots and white wine—a deliciously tangy dipping sauce for a delectable grilled cheese!
