Warning: This Post is Really Cheesy

grilled cheese

Did you know that April is Grilled Cheese Month? Well, according to Woman's Day, April is "Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month (via Wikipedia). In honor of that I decided to hunt for some grilled cheese recipes.

First I will share how I do grilled cheese :) My absolute favorite way to eat a grilled cheese is with Campbell's Bean with Bacon Soup. I take two ordinary slices of white bread and dollop butter (5 dollops so it looks like a flower) onto it and broil it in the oven until the butter melts and the bread is toast then I flip it over and add the cheese until it melts and then add two more slices of white bread to the dollop with some more butter onto the top and broil it until the butter melts and the bread is toasted creating a gooey inside and only semi crusted outside. I generally dip the sandwiches into the Campbell's Bean with Bacon Soup. Nom nom nom!!!

While sitting writing this post someone who works with my husband inquired as to what I was doing. Excited by the grilled cheese idea he immediately informed me of his favorite grilled cheese recipe... He gets two slices Rye bread and adds a little butter to both slices. To that he adds Muenster Cheese and throws it on a griddle grilling both sides until the insides are gooey and the outsides are crusty. Thanks Josh for the recipe!

On Pinterest I found a recipe for a grilled cheese that became my dinner one night. Mozzarella and pepperoni on white bread grilled to perfection and then served with a marinara sauce for dipping. It's like a mini calzone. So good!!!

  1. This made my mouth drool a bit..which could have something to do with the fact that I LOVE cheese but am in the middle of a raw food cleanse. Sigh. Anyhow my favorite grilled cheese recipe is fresh mozzarella with pesto on sourdough, butter on both sides of the bread, broil it in the oven and then add fresh tomato slices. A lil bit of heaven..

  3. In the movie "The Devil Wears Prada" Andrea's boyfriend Nate (played by the smokin hot Adrien Grenier) makes her a grilled cheese made with Jarlsburg cheese. She passes it up because she wants to be skinny like the girls at Runway. First of all, if Adrien Grenier is making me food, I don't care what it is, I'm eating it. Second of all, I'm assuming a Jarlsburg grilled cheese is good since his character played a chef so to pass on it is just preposterous.

  4. As for recipes, as a kid my mom would always take sourdough bread and butter the grilling sides, throw cheddar slices in there and serve with tomato soup. In the summer she would throw a freshly sliced tomato on the grilled cheese too. Now that I make grilled cheese for my kids I use either Martin's potato bread or sour dough bread for my grilled cheeses and I always use freshly sliced cheddar cheese for the middle. I still love it served with tomato soup.
