Spinach, Artichoke and Raclette Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Just to let you know, this post was written before I went fully paleo to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding. 

OK. Here it comes.

Spinach and artichokes go together so well, right? I mean, they're in creamy, cheesy dips all over Pinterest. And so I thought they'd be super in a grilled cheese sandwich. But not the usual Cheddar that usually completes the trio - I wanted a creamy, oozy Swiss: Raclette. 

You have to make this sandwich on granary bread - the malty nuttiness helps balance out the cheese and the spicy zing from the herb and chilli-marinated artichokes. Here's how you make it:

Spinach, Artichoke and Raclette Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Serves 1. 

Take two slices of granary bread and lightly toast them until just beginning to turn crisp. On one of the slices, arrange 1 and a half slices of Raclette cheese and then repeat for the other slice. Take one slice and press in a small handful of baby spinach leaves and then arrange marinated artichokes on the other slice, on top of the cheese. Press the two slices together and lay onto a slightly oiled griddle pan. Leave to turn crisp and golden for about 5 minutes - the cheese should just be starting to melt. Flip it over and grill the other side, until the cheese has melted. 

Enjoy hot.
