Broccoli Cheddar Grilled Cheese


• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 4 cups chopped broccoli florets (from 1 large head of broccoli)
• 1 teaspoon lemon zest (from 1 lemon)

• .50 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• .50 teaspoon garlic powder

① Heat oil in a large high-sided skillet over medium-high. Add broccoli; cook, stirring occasionally, until charred in spots and crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and transfer broccoli to a small bowl. Stir lemon zest, salt, pepper, and garlic powder into bowl with broccoli. Wipe skillet clean.
② Spread 1 side of each Rustic Italian slice with mayonnaise. Place 4 slices mayonnaise side down and top with Cheddar. Top Cheddar with broccoli mixture; top broccoli mixture with fontina. Top fontina with remaining 4 bread slices, mayonnaise side up.
