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!
