Crab Salad Grilled Cheese

Serves 4

Prep time: 8 minutes

Cook time: 12 minutes

This is a perfect, quick meal combining my love of seafood and cheese. The molten mozzarella spills out the sides of the grilled bread making it an absolute dream to eat. You can serve it with a side of tomato soup, but I usually just choose to eat ANOTHER sandwich.
