Single Girl’s Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Artichokes, Tomato, and Black Olives
Makes 1 sandwich
Time: 25 minutes. This sandwich was Kimberly Feltz's comfort food when she was in her 20s, living on her own. "I put all of my favorite foods on it â€¦ it's my 'Treat Yourself Special' grilled cheese sandwich."
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon softened cream cheese
2 slices sourdough rye
1 slice fontina cheese
1 slice sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup canned artichoke hearts, drained, dried, and mashed
About 8 brined medium black olives, halved
2 thin slices beefsteak tomato
Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Spread cream cheese on 1 side of 1 bread slice. Put slice in pan, cream cheese side up, and the other slice alongside. Scoot both around so they absorb the butter.
Reduce heat to low. Top cream cheese slice with fontina and the plain slice with cheddar. Cover pan and let cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until cheeses are melted. Transfer to a plate.
Cover fontina-topped slice with artichoke mash, olives, and tomato. Top with cheddar slice.
