Grilled Cheese with Frisée

Sara Jones, Tucson CSA

Frisée is a common ingredient in pressed Panini
sandwiches. Use whatever cheese and bread you have on
hand. Add thin slices of ham or prosciutto if you like.

For two sandwiches, drizzle 1 cup shredded frisée with
about 2 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with
salt and pepper. Toss to coat and set aside.

Spread 4 slices of bread with butter and place 2 slices, butter side
down, into a large non-stick pan over medium high heat.
Cover bread with slices of cheese, ham (if using any), and
frisée. Place remaining 2 slices of bread on top, butter side

When bottom slices of bread are nicely browned,
gently flip sandwiches, taking care not to spill ingredient.
Press with a spatula to flatten slightly and continue to cook
until bottom is browned.
