Celebrate National Grilled Cheese Day with this easy twist on the classic recipe.



  • 4 slices white bread (crust removed)
  • 4 Tbsp prepared pesto
  • 4 oz sliced provolone
  • 1 tbsp butter


  1. Roll each slice of bread to ¼-inch thickness using a rolling pin.
  2. Spread 1 Tbsp pesto evenly on one side of each bread slice. Layer each slice evenly with cheese. Roll up tightly, gently squeezing the end to seal.
  3. Heat skillet over medium heat. When hot, add 1 Tbsp butter to the skillet and swirl to melt coating the bottom of the skillet. Add roll-ups and cook evenly on each side until all sides are golden brown and cheese has melted (about 3-4 minutes). Serve immediately.
