Gooey grilled cheese

PCC Taste | February 2014

grilled cheese

While the ooey-gooey comfort of grilled cheese is a childhood favorite, this simple sandwich can be transformed into a gourmet dish. Try these four “grown-up” versions of the classic or experiment on your own with different kinds of bread, cheese and toppings.

Basic technique

  1. Lightly spread both sides of bread slices with butter and then assemble sandwich.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-low heat.
  3. Place sandwich in the warm skillet and cook on one side until golden brown and cheese begins to melt, 2 to 4 minutes.
  4. Flip sandwich over and cook until golden brown and cheese is completely melted, 2 to 4 additional minutes. If cheese is not melting fast enough, or you prefer a softer/less crunchy sandwich, place a lid partially over the pan during the cooking process.
  5. Let cool 2 minutes before cutting, so the cheese doesn't ooze out!

Four cheesy combos to try

Fig & Manchego with Caramelized Onions

Roasted Beets & Gouda with Pesto

Gorgonzola & Hazelnut Butter with Arugula

Barlett Pear & White Cheddar with Dijon
