Grilled Cheese & Tomato Croissant

This is one of the simplest lunches to put together. Arya loves croissants so I add three ingredients to the croissant and grill to make it more interesting. I serve with cucumbers and cantaloupe making a very colourful lunch plate.

Yield: 1-2

Prep Time: 2 mins

Cook Time: 5 mins

Ingredients:

  • 1 croissant sliced in half
  • 1 tbsp of red or green pesto
  • handful of grated cheddar cheese
  • 4-5 baby tomatoes, cut into halves or quarters
  • pinch of dried mixed herbs or oregano (optional)

Method:

  1. Spread the pesto to each half of the croissant.
  2. Top with cheddar cheese, tomatoes and sprinkle with the herbs if using.
  3. Grill on a medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until the cheese has melted and begins to turn golden.
  4. Serve immediately.

Tips:

If you don’t want to use pesto you can always use a pizza base sauce or tomato puree.
