While the classic grilled cheese (along with some tomato soup) is a speedy dinner standby, we’re also big fans of stuffing our sandwiches with a little something extra. After all, the combination of crispy, pan-fried bread and gooey melted cheese embraces all sorts of fillings, from zucchini to peppers to dates and bacon.
A soak in a 24-hour brine transforms the heavier sweetness of roasted beets into a tart, complex pickle. Layered between rich goat cheese and zippy chives, the combination makes a hearty sandwich that won’t weigh you down. Plus, the beautiful deep red is sure to brighten up your plate.
