Grilled cheese is where simplicity meets pure satisfaction… This version is all jazzed up with tasty ingredients yet only takes minutes to create. Toasty rye bread, gooey cheese, fresh bold basil microgreens, juicy tomato & tangy dijon mustard makes this the ultimate quick lunch or dinner. Bonus - you probably already have all of the ingredients needed on hand!


Benefits of basil microgreens: 

  • Contain protein
  • Full of vitamins E, K, A, B6 & C
  • High in calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, copper, phosphorous, and even potassium
  • Anti-Inflammatory & anti-bacterial properties


  • 2 slices rye bread, or your favorite bread
  • 1 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3-4 slices sharp cheddar cheese & Gruyère cheese, or your favorite cheese
  • 1 ripened tomato on the vine
  • 1 large handful bold basil microgreens
  • Garlic/herb seasoning
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Lemon & Microgreen Basil Vinaigrette, for dipping (optional)


  1. Butter each piece of bread on one side.
  2. Place one slice, butter side down, in a cast-iron pan or skillet. Spread the Dijon mustard on top.
  3. Layer on the cheese, tomatoes, microgreens and salt/pepper next. Top that with the other buttered slice of bread, butter side out. Cook over medium-high heat, pressing the sandwich down with your spatula for more of a panini-style sandwich.
  4. When the bottom is perfectly golden-brown, flip it over & season with your garlic/herb seasoning, if using. Press the sandwich down into the pan again.
  5. When the second side is golden brown, remove from heat. Cut diagonally and enjoy immediately.

TIP: Dip your delicious grilled cheese in lemon & microgreen basil vinaigrette for an extra burst of fresh flavor!
