There's a proud little snippet of conversation in my memory banks. From when I was dating the chef and I was semi-complaining that I never got to cook anymore. He responded, "Well, didn't you admit to me that you burned the last grilled cheese sandwich you made?" And so I did. But that was a specific sort of distracted day. And that's why they make Adderall, see...
Grilled cheese sandwiches aren't indulgences I'm allowing myself too many of these days, but the last time I made one, I used havarti and pumpernickel. And it was YumMY!!!
Today I've stumbled across a little gem that makes me giggle at the exciting things you can find when you're peeking around the 'net. From a fun blog called "To be Mrs. Marv" comes this little gem: Grilled Cheese Manifesto. And check out just some of the variations she shares:
- Farmer, Blue Cheese, Basil & Red Wine, Balsamic Vinegar Reduction
- Cheddar, Chevre & Salsa on Sourdough
- Cheddar & Romano on Caraway Rye with Mustard
- Gruyere with Bacon, Green Onions & Tobasco on Sourdough
With recipes and photos to show me what the end result should look like if done properly, how can I resist but try some of these? They're way more interesting than any grilled cheese I ever made myself. Including the ones I didn't burn!
