Pepperoni Mozzarella Grilled Cheese - Project LunchBox |

Pepperoni Mozzarella Grilled Cheese. Isn’t that all you need to know.

Why should I get too wordy ~ when all you really need to do is get up & make one. Or two….

To keep things on the healthier side I used Applegate Farms Organic ~ Uncured Pepperoni.

My friend recommended it for pizza (amazing) and the leftover pieces I used in this sandwich.

Adding cheese makes the world go round. Melting & crisping it all in a sauté pan with butter? Priceless.

Crisp rainbow carrots & homemade Lemon Pepper Popcorn round things out.

Isn’t this lunch container awesome? You can pick one up at my Amazon store ~ It is collapsible for easy storage & is simple to clean in the top rack of your dishwasher too.

Pizza grilled cheese sandwiches are so good! You just need some sauce for dipping!
