Grilled Cheese Casserole

Yes, you read that correctly. Grilled cheese. In casserole form! It’s even a great way to sneak some veggies to those picky eaters, but ssshhh! don’t tell them!!

It’s like regular grilled cheese, but WAY better!

Ingredients:
– Bread slices, amount will depend on the size pan you’re making
– Cheese(s) of choice (I used Gouda, Gruyere, and extra sharp cheddar)
– Vegetables of choice (broccoli would work amazingly, or any greens you have on hand)
– Kefir milk OR plain yogurt thinned out with milk
– Egg(s) (OPTIONAL)

Directions:

  1. Grease your baking dish of choice (I used a 12″ cast iron skillet) and preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Layer bread slices along the bottom of your baking dish, covering as much of the bottom as possible.
  3. Layer cheese slices on top of your bread, again covering as much surface area as possible.
  4. Layer vegetables or greens in top of your cheese layer.
  5. Layer MORE CHEESE on top of your vegetables or greens.
  6. Layer additional bread slices on top of cheese and vegetables/greens, again covering as much surface area as possible.
  7. Pour Kefir milk or thinned out yogurt on top, enough to coat the bread and soak in a little, but not so much that it’s soggy. This will prevent the bread from becoming too crusty.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
  9. If you’re adventurous and you want to try it with egg(s), crack on the top and bake an additional 12 or so minutes, or until egg reaches desired doneness (personally, I prefer my yolks a little runny).
  10. Devour.
