National Grilled Cheese Month

Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month?  I sure as heck did not!!  I stumbled upon it on a quest to find the one true crusty sandwich recipe, one recipe to rule them all.  And Let me tell you….there are so many recipes out there….and so many fancy ones.  I don’t want to make a special trip to the grocery store so I will need to create my own celebration of National Grilled Cheese month by making it up as I go!

DSCN1584I used the following:

2 Sourdough slices, 2 tomato slices, grated sharp and white cheddar, American cheese, Parmesan cheese and butter.

HINT:  Heat your pan before you even start making the sandwich – that way you are not tempted to put in the sandwich before it is properly heated.

DSCN1587Butter one side of each slice and press the Parmesan into the butter.  (Hence the reason for a sturdy sourdough – white bread would have been so squished)

DSCN1588Tap off the extra Parmesan cheese and get ready to place in the hot pan.

DSCN1589Add on your grated cheddar cheeses…….and wait for it to get a little melty.

DSCN1590I placed a tomato slice on each side and then put the whole pan under the broiler.  When I pulled the pan out, I put the American cheese slice on top (total fake plastic wrap cheese did not need to go under the broiler – the heat melted it nicely after I pulled the sandwich out).  I put the two parts of the sandwich together and Viola!!!!

DSCN1591See that awesome crust?!!  Cut that bad boy in half and if you feel so inclined – treat yourself to some tomato soup.

DSCN1592Ahhhh – National Grilled Cheese Month – I am so glad we met.
