Spinach Artichoke Grilled Cheese

A classic spinach artichoke dip is pretty darn hard to beat. It’s bubbly, it’s cheesy, it’s warm, and even though it may be a bit 80’s, I will always welcome it at my party. So yesterday was my stomach when screaming for lunch, it seemed like a perfect idea to stuff my favorite dip into a grilled cheese sandwich. Layered with spinach, artichoke, cream cheese, and shredded cheese – this makes a perfect lunch. I wanted some added protein so I threw in some turkey. Vegetarian bacon would also be delicious. The only thing I can really think of that would make this meal even better would be a Wonder Years marathon.
