This is a great sandwich that I randomly decided to make with some left over pico de gallo from a taco dinner I made the night before. This is vegetarian and makes a tasty lunch. A good side dish would be tomato soup.

  • Spread butter onto 1 side of each bread slice. Arrange bread, butter-side down, onto a work surface. Place 1 slice provolone cheese onto each bread slice and spoon pico de gallo onto 5 of the bread-cheese slices. Top each pico de gallo layer with remaining bread-cheese slices, butter-side up.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Grill each sandwich in the hot skillet until golden brown and cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

A delicious way to prepare a grilled cheese sandwich. I only prepared two sandwiches rather than five. The mixture of the tomatoes onion and cilantro worked nicely together but I really enjoyed the twist of the lime. I never butter a grilled cheese but instead use a thin layer of mayonnaise. This sandwich paired very nicely with a bowl of tomato soup. Read More

I love Pico de Gallo - this one needed a little diced jalapeno or a serrano chili - if you are only using one tomato make it a big one or use several smaller tomatoes. Instead of buttering the bread for grilled cheese I use a very thin layer of mayonnaise. Thanks for a nice lunch. Read More

I wasn't able to quite wrap my head around provolone with pico de gallo so I took it one step further and used pepper jack cheese and it turned out to be one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches I have ever made. I also used mayo instead of butter on sourdough bread. This is a keeper folks. Read More
