« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

This week's new recipe is a greens-loaded toastie with fresh basil and feta - the toasted sandwich you never knew you needed. It's full of garlicky, zesty chopped greens, and delicious feta and provolone cheese. The perfect weekend lunch or easy dinner that you're definitely going to want to try.

Use some thick sourdough bread for the best results, and if you're making this for more the one just increase the amounts based on the number of sandwiches you'll be making.

If you happen to have any leftover filling it would also taste delicious baked in a ramekin with an egg “greens baked eggs” or tossed through some freshly cooked pasta.

Enjoy the recipe and feel free to ask any questions.
