Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C).
  • Place the sliced squash onto a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • While the squash is baking combine butter and ground cinnamon in a small bowl. Mix. Smear some cinnamon butter on one side of the bread.
  • Once the squash is done, you are now ready to make your grilled cheese! Heat a pan over medium heat. Place a slice of bread, butter side down into the pan. Top with 2 slices of cheese. Cook for 1-2 minutes until a nice brown crust forms.
  • Place a few pieces of squash on top of the cheese. Top with the second slice of bread with the buttered side on top.
  • Flip the sandwich so the butter side of the top slice is faced down. Cook for 1-2 minutes until a brown crust forms. Repeat this process for the rest of the sandwiches.
  • Optional: serve with a side of tomato soup.
