Turkey Veggie Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Alfalfa Sprouts

Alfalfa sprouts spruce up this veggie-packed sandwich and provide an abundance of antioxidants. This is one of my favorite grilled cheese sandwich creations of all time!

I have to thank my mother for helping me to fall in love with alfalfa sprouts at a young age. I'm not sure I would give them the time of day without her guidance. I don't always think to add them to my grocery list, but when they are in my fridge I eat them all up. This grilled cheese sandwich is delicious sans sprouts, but adding them makes the sandwich INCREDIBLE.

I am about to embark on a rainy field trip with a bunch of fourth graders, so feel free to say a prayer for me. Wishing for a great day for you, wherever you are!

  • 2 small handfuls alfalfa sprouts
  • 8 slices red onion

Layer each sandwich as follows: Slice of bread, butter side down, mustard side up, ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or 2 slices), 1 small handful alfalfa sprouts, 4 slices red onion, 2 tomato slices, 2 slices turkey, ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (or 2 slices) and slice of bread, mustard side down, butter side up.
