Pesto crab grilled cheese sandwich

I combined my love of The Grilled Cheese and my newest love of pesto to create one tasty little sandwich. This grilled cheese is so delicious that while you are eating it, you will forget that your baby is crying and your toddler is screaming at you to get him some more FRUIT SNACKS, MOM.

First, make a batch of delicious pesto. Or, buy some. But making it is so much fun!

In a small bowl, mix together:

2 oz. chopped imitation crab meat

A few spoonfuls of pesto

A dollup of cream cheese

Butter one side of a piece of wheat or white bread. Place it butter-side down on a skillet over medium-low heat.

Layer with:

Cojack or cheddar cheese

The pesto-crab-cream cheese mixture

Top with:

Cojack or cheddar cheese

A piece of wheat or white bread, butter-side up

When the cheese closest to the pan melts, carefully flip the sandwich over. When the other cheese slice melts, remove from heat. Cut sandwich in half and DEVOUR! YUM!

Wow! this looks and sounds amazing...I might replace the cheddar with fontia and the krab with crab. Actually I think some green onions might give it a lil zip...thanks for the inspiration! :D
