Who says a grilled cheese sandwich has to contain bread?! This fun Mediterranean Diet recipe is inspired by a very traditional Greek island dish for squash cooked in layers in a skillet with onions, cheese and tomatoes. I’ve transformed the idea into a sandwich, without tomatoes. You can use zucchini, pumpkin, calabasa, or any other squash you’d like in place of butternut.
Squeeze excess moisture out of the squash by placing it in a kitchen towel and wringing and squeezing for a few minutes.
Place two squash patties in the same skillet over medium heat. Top both with shredded feta or halloumi, then place two more patties on top to form two sandwiches. Cook until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes per side.
