I love a classic grilled cheese on white bread, but sometimes you need to try something new, like this Grilled Cheese Flatbread Sandwich recipe. Sometimes you need to use up what is in your freezer!

Grilled Cheese Flatbread Sandwich

I happened to have some flatbread in the freezer, so with this Roasted Sweet Potato Soup, we thought a flatbread grilled cheese would go great with the spicy, sweet and savory flavors of the soup. Or, maybe try Mom’s Vegetable Beef Soup!

While the outside of the bread toasts like a regular grilled cheese, the flatbread itself has a denser crumb and a delightfully chewier texture. I used a neutral cheese so as to not compete with the flavorful soup we made, but you can add a stronger cheese if you’d like. The addition of harissa, or another chili paste, would also be delightful!

Ingredients for Flatbread Toasted Cheese

  • Ghee (we use ghee, but you can also use butter or mayonnaise)

What is low-moisture mozzarella cheese?

It comes in a block form, and is often labeled “low moisture.” Pre-grated cheese comes with an anti-caking agent on the cheese that can alter the texture of the food. So buying it in block form eliminates those elements.

Funny, my mom always bought the block form and grated it herself. We try to do the same now.
