Grown-Up Grilled Cheese

I love a simple grilled cheese, but sometimes I crave a little more than just bread and cheese.  To keep my grilled cheese from feeling too much like ‘kid food’, I use sourdough, add arugula and tomatoes, and use olive oil instead of butter.

Don’t raise the heat too much – cooking longer over a lower temperature allows the for bread to get the desired golden crust and for the cheese to melt. Once done, carefully open the sandwich and add tomatoes and arugula. Re-close the sandwich and cut in half.
