Finally, I have returned with a new grilledshane original creation. Sure, I flirted with a sandwich that highlighted an awesome local cheese, but it has been forever since I actually created a new grilledshane original. It was time. It was definitely time.

I hope to create grilled cheeses on a regular basis again, as long as my creativity hasn’t been depleted.

Instead, I returned to Whole Foods trying to find one jar of less expensive, but still yummy, pasta sauce. From there, I was on my way…to creating an Eggplant & Roasted Red Pepper Grilled Cheese.

Bruschetta Grilled Cheese
