Blueberry Pesto Grilled Cheese

One of the most comforting meals in my adult life is a grilled cheese. Not just your run-of-the-mill American cheese on white bread grilled cheeses. I'm talking a creamy, gooey, flavorful grilled cheese on fresh sourdough. A little sweet, a little salty, and of course with a few green things thrown in there.

I LOOOOOOVE goat cheese and I think a perfect pairing to that is some sort of fruit. You could probable use cranberries or strawberries and get a similar result. No matter what you use, this grilled cheese has such a myriad of flavors that you'll enjoy it until the last bite!

If you're vegan or dairy-free, a great alternative would be Violife or Follow Your Heart mozzarella slices. Additionally, you can make your own pesto or Trader Joes has a wonderful vegan pesto option. I would love to hear everyone's spin on this and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
