I know everyone has had a classic grilled cheese sandwich, but have you ever tried a Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich? One of my struggles as a parent is finding meals that the kids will eat, but something I would enjoy. There has been times where I would make mac and cheese for the kids and separate pasta dish for myself and husband. It doesn’t happen that often, but I wanted to find a meal that we all could enjoy so I started getting more creative. I played with a lot of our favorite meals and did a hybrid of them. One was a Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Full disclosure my daughter Shayna did pick out the fresh basil, but I still count that as a win. We all were able to enjoy the cappers grilled cheese sandwich with one minor alteration and I didn’t feel like a short oder cook.
