Fancy BLT Grilled Cheese Sandwiches I almost hit you with another mile long recipe title. So I decided to save you about three whole minutes by swapping out – ‘sundried tomato pesto, peppered bacon, spinach, Fontina cheese and honey roasted garlic mayo’ for the word “fancy”. Ha! You’re welcome. As my final sammie for Grilled Cheese Month, the United Dairy Industry of Michigan ( ) has asked me to create one ooey gooey sandwich featuring… you guessed it cheese. I wanted to take a classic sandwich {the BLT} and fancify it by using sundried tomato pesto, peppered slab bacon, baby spinach instead of reg-o lettuce and I also whipped up a killer honey roasted garlic mayo to bring it all home. As if you need another post dedicated to showing you how to build a grilled cheese, I know. So sundried tomato pesto is pretty magical. I whipped up my sundried tomato walnut pesto that I made almost two years ago {nooo, that long?}. And then I grated up 6 ounces of Fontina cheese. The mayo… ohhhh this mayo.

Meredith Rizzo/NPR A selection of low-alcohol wines, including a Riesling from Germany, a Vinho Verde from Portugal and a Txakoli from the Basque region of Spain. Big, bold wines have their fans.

Start with three boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Sprinkle them generously with whatever you’d like: taco seasoning, Cajun seasoning, or just a mix of chili powder, cumin, seasoned salt, etc. Heat some oil in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat… And cook them on both sides until they’re nice and brown on the surface and totally cooked in the middle.
