Ingredients

for the creamed spinach

  • 400 g baby spinach approx. 8 cups
  • 50 g feta cheese crumbled (approx. 4 tablespoons)
  • 125 ml fresh cream heavy cream (1/2 cup)
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt & pepper to taste

for the grilled cheese

  • 6 slices bread of your choice
  • 150 g mozzarella grated (approx. 1 cup)
  • butter

Instructions

  • To make the creamed spinach, wash the baby spinach well then place in a bowl.
  • Cover with boiling water and allow to blanch for a minute.
  • Drain and squeeze out the excess water (be careful, it will be hot).
  • Chop the spinach then place in a warm pan. Add the feta cheese and cream and allow to simmer for 5-6 minutes until the cream has reduced.
  • Season with the lemon, salt and pepper and remove from the heat to cool to room temperature.
  • When the spinach has cooled down, sandwich a few spoons with the mozzarella between two slices of bread.
  • Heat a griddle pan over medium-high heat.
  • Generously butter the top and bottom of the sandwich then place on the grill. Cook for 3-4 minutes, flipping half-way, until the sandwich is golden brown and all the cheese has melted.
  • Remove and serve.
