Spinach Feta Grilled Cheese

With a little feta cheese for a tangy punch, a few spicy flakes of red pepper, and toasted it up on a ciabatta roll this grilled cheese is something truly spectacular. Spinach Feta Grilled Cheese only takes slightly longer than a regular grilled cheese, and it’s SO worth the extra effort!

Ingredients
½ Tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
¼ lb. fresh cut spinach
Pinch of salt & pepper
2 ciabatta rolls
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 oz. feta cheese
pinch red pepper flakes (optional)


Instructions
Mince the garlic and add it to a skillet with the olive oil. Cook over medium-low heat for 1-2 minutes, or until it begins to soften. Add the spinach, turn the heat up to medium, and cook for about 3 - 5 minutes or until spinach is tinder. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Cut the rolls in half. Add about ¼ cup of shredded mozzarella and ½ oz. of feta to the bottom half of each roll. Divide the cooked spinach between the two sandwiches, then top with a pinch of red pepper flakes, plus ¼ more shredded mozzarella on each.

Place the top half of the ciabatta roll on the sandwiches and transfer them to a large non-stick skillet. Fill a large pot with a few inches of water to create weight, then place the pot on top of the sandwiches to press them down like a panini press. Turn the heat on to medium-low and cook until the sandwiches are crispy on the bottom. Carefully flip the sandwiches, place the weighted pot back on top, and cook until crispy on the other side and the cheese is melted. Serve warm.
