Tasty Tuesday: My Heart BEETS for You


It wasn't too long ago that I learned of my strong like for beets and not long after that, my love for roasted beets in my grilled cheese. Should I be sharing a new idea with you, be prepared to fall in love.

Ingredients:

2 slices of bread (Flour Head Bakery White Bread is fantastic)
2 beets (peeled, sliced and roasted - I like mixing red and golden beets)
1/2 small onion (thinly sliced)
1 large kale or swish chard leave (chiffonade cuts work best)
2-3 tbs goat cheese (room temp or slightly warmed for easier spreading)
1 slice mozzarella cheese
butter for grilling

  1. Roast beets in 400 degree oven for 15-20 minutes wrapped in aluminum foil pouch (drizzle with olive oil for roasting)
  2. Toss onion and greens in together in olive oil and roast in the oven at the same temperature for 5-10 minutes
  3. Spread the goat cheese on your bread
  4. Place the mozzarella on one side of the bread (I usually put a little more goat cheese on one half to hold the veggies a little better and put the mozzarella on the other half) and the roasted veggies on the other half
  5. Place the sandwich on the buttered griddle and cover with a cookware lid to hold the heat in for ooey gooey cheese meltage...flip...
  6. EAT!
