Grilled Cheese and Fried Mozzarella Squash Blossom

I’ve been frying squash blossoms stuffed with my homemade mozzarella all summer long (we don’t sell mozz in our online store, but it’s easy to make your own with one of our DIY kits). 

This treat satisfies all my cravings in one bite: fresh edible summer flowers, golden-fried batter, butter-toasted sourdough bread, and gooey, cheesy goodness. The dumplings are great on their own, but their texture is really incredible inside a grilled cheese sandwich.

Ever wonder what to do with that excessive amount of parsley left over from a recipe that only called for a tablespoon as garnish? Parsley Pesto is a perfect way to please your palate and your pantry. Can you tell I’m a fan of alliteration and personification? In all seriousness, piquant parsley pesto has an amazing shelf life that far outlives your average basil pesto. It has been sitting green and vibrant in my fridge for the past three weeks.

I’ve first inserted the recipes for both of these creations, and lastly have woven them all together into the beautiful monstrosity that is the title of this post. Enjoy them separately and apart.

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
