One of my favorite comfort foods is a delicious grilled cheese sandwich; they just make me happy! So, last night, we made some super yummy grilled cheese sandwiches with some new combinations that we’ve never tried at home & served them with roasted asparagus on the side & it all turned out to be delicious. DO try this at home!
This is not so much an exact recipe with measurements & specific portions for everything – just enough for one sandwich with my details below; but, grilled cheese should be a free-form thing anyway, don’t you think?
2 slices of the bread of your choice (we used wheat bread this time)
Several slices of the cheese of your choice (we used a really yummy smoked Gouda this time)
2 slices of fakin’ bacon (or real, if you prefer – my only complaint with the fake stuff was that it didn’t get extra crispy like the real stuff does, but it did have nice flavor)
Put these all together, spread the bread on both of the outer sides with some butter (we use Earth Balance), & grill ’em up in a grill pan (don’t forget to flip your sandwich to toast both sides) until everything is melty & oozy… I’m drooling now!
And, like I said, we served this with one bunch of asparagus, which we roasted in the oven & seasoned (coat lightly with olive oil & seasonings – salt, pepper, veggie seasoning mix) & sprinkled with a little lemon at the end – yum!
More on other yummy grilled cheeses to come… I do have a soft spot for mozzarella grilled cheese sandwiches with pesto & tomato.
