Chimichurri Grilled Cheese Filling
Any leftover butter mixture can be stored in the fridge for an additional day.
For the filling: In a small bowl, combine butter, olive oil, red wine vinegar, parsley, cilantro, shallots and garlic. Mix well until heavily incorporated.
In the same bowl, add mozzarella cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well until it has a smooth consistency.
Place 2 pieces of bread on a cutting board. On 1 piece of bread, spread chimichurri filling. Top with remaining piece of bread and press down slightly to seal. Repeat with remaining 6 slices of bread and chimichurri filling.
On each outer side of the sandwich, lightly spread with butter until evenly coated. Dip both sides of the sandwich into a shallow bowl of Parmesan cheese.
In a small skillet with olive oil, lightly fry each side until golden brown.
Serve and enjoy on its own or with a side of your favourite soup.
