Spinach and Artichoke Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Spinach and Artichoke Grilled Cheese Sandwich

makes 2 sandwiches

Print this Recipe!

splash of olive oil

1 small clove garlic

3 cups (or 3 big handfuls) baby spinach

4 slices bread (I used sourdough)

about 2 tablespoons cream cheese

1/3-1/2 cup grated or crumbled jack cheese

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup coarsely chopped canned artichoke hearts, drained

1 heaping tablespoon sour cream

1/2 to 1 teaspoon sriracha

large pinch of sea salt

1 tablespoon butter, for grilling the sandwiches

Sandwiches are very personal so the ingredients above are entirely flexible and up to you!

In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium-low heat.  Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds.  Add spinach leaves and saute until wilted.  This should happen quickly.  Spinach just wilts in a hot pan.  Remove spinach from skillet, place in a medium bowl and set aside.

Spread each slice of bread with a bit of cream cheese.  You don’t need much.  We’re using it as edible sandwich glue.

Squeeze or press as much liquid as possible out of the canned artichoke hearts using a paper towel.

To the bowl of sautéed spinach add, jack cheese, Parmesan cheese, chopped artichoke hearts, sour cream, sriracha, and salt.  Stir until combined.

Top two slices of bread with spinach and artichoke filling.  Make sandwiches with the two remaining slices of bread.

Heat butter in a skillet over medium-low heat.  Add sandwiches and grill until each side is golden and the insides are melty warm.  Serve immediately.

That looks pretty good.

I do my reuben sammiches this way....

I put the sauerkraut and the meat in a skillet and heat them up a little. (The heat takes away a little of the bite of the sauerkraut)

Then I make them like toasted cheese sammiches. 

I don't have a picture of them, though. Sorry.

That sounds yummy! Do you make the broth yourself and the sauerkraut? Is there a recipe?

I can make the russian dressing myself, but normally just buy it.

The sauerkraut, I don't make myself. I probably could if I had a recipe for it. I just buy boar's head sauerkraut. It's milder and has a lot of flavor to it.

Corned beef

russian dressing

swiss cheese

sauerkraut

rye bread

I don't use a certain amount of each item, though. I just kinda put it together so that it looks good to me.
