spinach artichoke grilled cheese sandwich - All that's Jas

 

I love spinach and artichoke dip – maybe a little too much if I’m honest. It’s almost an addiction. My husband knows that’s the only shareable appetizer at a restaurant I won’t share and he doesn’t come near it.

 

Now, we don’t eat out very often and making spinach artichoke dip at home every time I crave it is not always feasible. But turning it into a grilled cheese sandwich is an excellent idea for two reasons:

  1. You don’t need to make a huge batch or buy mounds of chips
  2. It is so satiating, you won’t mind sharing it with your husband

 

Of course, making your food at home and knowing exactly what you put in it is another good reason, but the first two were convincing enough for me. I’ve been always using mozzarella cheese for this grilled cheese sandwich, but here I made a few with cheddar just to add a bit of color.

 

I thought it surely wouldn’t take away from that spinach and artichoke dip flavor I love. I was wrong. From now on, my friend, I’m sticking with mozzarella.

 

I was also thinking of some other, healthier, alternatives. But you know what?

 

April is a National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month and I’ll celebrate it today with all this gooey cheese and bread and think of healthy food some other day. Besides, spinach and artichokes count for something, right? For more grilled cheese inspiration a group of bloggy friends got together to share their favorite grilled cheese sandwich. Make sure you visit their links below.

 

I shared the recipe for spinach and artichoke grilled cheese sandwich five years ago. It badly needed a revamp. I’ve got a few old posts I need to redo. I’ll get to it one day, I hope. Leaving the old post there in case you need a good laugh.

ingredients for spinach and artichoke grilled cheese

 

Ingredients:
Makes 4 sandwiches

  • 6 cups fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped
  • 6 canned artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded or sliced mozzarella
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 8 slices of bread
  • Butter for spreading

 

~ Free Tip ~

Assemble your sandwiches before placing them in a skillet to minimize the amount of cheese falling out and burning. Of course, you won’t have this problem if you use sliced cheese. However, if you like lots of gooey cheese, shredded is the way to go.

 

Directions:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until fragrant, about 20-30 seconds. Toss in spinach and sauté until just wilted, about two minutes. Add the artichokes, salt, and pepper, then sauté until heated through, about two minutes. Drain off any liquid from the skillet and stir in sour cream (to make spinach artichoke dip add mozzarella cheese, but for grilled cheese sandwich proceed to the steps below).
  2. Spread butter on one side of each of bread pieces. Heat a griddle pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Place pieces of bread on the griddle, buttered side down. Spread some shredded cheese, the spinach artichoke filling, and some more cheese. Top with the other piece of bread buttered side faced up. When the bottom is browned, flip the sandwich and cook until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted.

    “Jassy” new look you’ve got here, nice.
    I would never have thought of this is a million years, but I game to try it in consideration of cheese month.
    What a sport, right?
    p.s. I’m GLAD it’s not the healthy version – too much talk of healthy eating & calories & stuff just bores me because it’s been SO overdone that the whole thing seems to have just become a jumble of buzzwords. Can’t we just eat food and enjoy it?

      Hi, Bobbi! Thank you for the compliments on my new design. I wanted a new look for a long time but was dreading the work. Still needs some tweaking but I can finally relax and do it at the slower pace.

      Hi, Jolene! Artichokes are best when mixed with another flavor. I also love them in a sauce like in my Italian chicken with artichoke sauce recipe. Hope you like them!
