It's National Grilled Cheese Month : Grilled Cheese Sandwich Ideas
Did you guys know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? We are both huge cheese lovers and even more so, we adore grilled cheese sandwiches! We thought we would share with you guys some ideas for making some to celebrate the month. This is a compilation of past grilled cheese sandwiches that we personally made in our homes over the years. We hope you guys get some new ideas as we are going beyond the usual combinations. We put together interesting , but we promise, really yummy pairings! Check it out!
Pimiento Grilled Cheese
For this first combination, you will need mozzarella cheese, cheddar, pimiento, garlic and bread. Roast the garlic until it turns golden brown. Pile it up with chopped pimiento and the cheeses on top of the bread. Grill or fry the sandwich with butter until it turns golden brown and cheeses melt. enjoy with a cup of coffee!
Arugula and mushroom
You will need arugula, mushrooms (canned or fresh is fine - if fresh, saute for a few minutes with garlic!), garlic and mozzarella cheese. Put it all together and grill or fry with butter until cheese is melted!
Brie and walnut
You will need Brie, walnuts, honey, truffle olive oil and bread of course. Chop up the walnuts into small pieces and mix it in with honey and truffle olive oil. Put the Brie and walnut mixture on top of the bread. Grill with butter until cheese is melted!
Ham, jam and cheese
For this combination, you will need some jam (any kind will do, we used strawberry), mozzarella, provolone and ham. Spread the jam on the bread and pile the rest. You know what to do next! Grill/fry in a pan with butter until golden brown and cheeses melt.
Caramelized onions and mushroom
All you need are onions, garlic, mushrooms and cheese of your choice. Here, we used cheddar and mozzarella. First you caramelize the garlic and onions (cook low and slow!). Then put it all together with the mushroom and cheese on the bread. Grill or fry with butter and you're all set!
