While in San Francisco, I was introduced to this really cool vegetarian diner. I remember this one sandwich very well because I went back for it multiple times that week. So what was the sandwich that made me go back? A Ricotta and Spinach grilled cheese sandwich.
I did my best to recreate this wonderful sandwich. Although I love a standard grilled cheese, sometimes I just want something a bit different, and often times I want something a little on the lighter side.
Many grilled cheese sandwiches can be on the heavy side, often overloaded with cheese layers, and can include additions like bacon and avocado.
But let me be the first to tell you this Ricotta Spinach grilled cheese sandwich is different. It isn’t heavy at all and is actually super light, kind of like biting into a pastry.
To prepare this, I simply spread a thick layer of ricotta on two buttered pieces of brioche bread and added a handful of spinach. When cooked in the air fryer, the ricotta will expand into a delicious fluffy middle, with a smooth and creamy texture. The ricotta and brioche complement the spinach in the most perfect way.
If you’re looking for a light meal, I highly recommend this delicious sandwich!
