Italian Beef Grilled Cheese – Take your grilled cheese to a whole new level with peperoncini, provolone, roast beef, and a delicious creamy dijon spread! Lunch has never been more flavorful!
Grilled cheese sandwiches are a staple at my house! For the most part, we still to plain ole’ american cheese and bread but occasionally I like to jazz them up and use exciting new ingredients. I decided to take my favorite flavors from italian beef and make them into a grilled cheese and oh my, this might just be the greatest grilled cheese I have ever made! Start to finish, this is a meal that takes less than 15 minutes so it’s nice and quick, perfect for busy weeknights! Most of what is in this is ingredients you usually have lying around but may have forgotten in the back corner of your fridge, like peperoncini. Personally, I am really guilty of buying things like peperoncini for a recipe and completely forgetting I ever bought them after that as they get pushed farther and farther into the back corner of my fridge. It’s such an exciting surprise when they pop back up a few months later as I am cleaning my fridge! If you are one of those people too, then pull out that jar of peperoncini and let’s get to the bottom of that jar instead of wasting them!
I popped over to get everything I needed at my local ShopRite where the Mezzetta Peperoncini were located with other jarred veggies and toppings. Super easy to find!
I think the peperoncini are such a nice addition to this grilled cheese, it really is the star of the show! This will definitely be a new regular recipe at my house!
