Butternut Squash Kale Grilled Cheese

Chef Linda's taking grilled cheese sandwiches to the max! Yields 4 sandwiches


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Olivia’s Organics Butternut Peeled Squash half
  • Salt and pepper- to taste
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter - softened (more as needed)
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 12 ounces soft Brie cheese
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 handfuls Olivia’s Organics Baby Kale - chopped


  • Preheat oven to 425° F.
  • Place peeled and halved squash on a sheet pan. Rub with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 30 minutes, or until tender and beginning to brown. Set aside to slightly cool. (Can be made ahead). Once cooled, slice thinly.
  • Heat a grill pan with butter.
  • Butter one side of all 8 slices of bread. Place 4 slices of bread (butter side down) onto grill pan. Build each sandwich by layering on the Brie, squash slices, onion slices, and kale. Top each sandwich with bread (butter side up).
  • Cook sandwiches until browned. Carefully turn the sandwiches and press down slightly, cooking until bottom side is browned.
