Grilled Cheese – Simple and Delicious

I found an article in Food Network magazine about grilled cheese sandwiches.  It had 12 different recipes.  I passed it around a couple of Fridays ago and had the kids pick out which one they would like for Sunday dinner.  I made Minestrone Soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.  It was a fun, relaxing Sunday.  I had a blast making the different sandwiches.  I ended up making a Parisian, Italian, Brie and Apricot and later in the week a Pastrami grilled cheese.

 

Italian Grilled Cheese

NOvember 018

Hero Roll sliced in half, 1 slice Provolone cheese, salami, prosciutto or soppresseta, hot cherry peppers, 1 slice provolone.  Heat 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a non stick skillet over medium low heat; add the sandwich and top with another skillet.  Cook until golden brown and the cheese melts, about 3-4 minutes per side.

Parisian

NOvember 021

Split a croissant, spread dijonnaise on the cut sides.  Sandwich with one slice of Muenster, 1 slice of ham, one slice of Muenster.  Butter the outside of the croissant.   Preheat a non stick skillet over medium low heat; add the sandwich and top with another skillet.  Cook until golden brown and the cheese melts, about 3 minutes per side.   (For the dijonnaise take 1 Tablespoon of dijon mustard and 1 Tablespoon of mayonnaise, mix together – voila – dijonnaise!)

Brie and Apricot Grilled Cheese

Spread apricot preserves on 2 slices of Brioche.  Sandwich with Brie. Melt one Tablespoon of butter in a non stick skillet over medium low heat; add the sandwich and cook until golden brown and the cheese melts, about 3-4 minutes per side. Add more butter when flipping sandwich.  (This one was not a fan favorite. Sorry no photo of this one.)

Pastrami Grilled Cheese

november 002

Spread brown mustard on 2 slices of rye bread.  Sandwich with 1 slice of swiss cheese, a few slices of pastrami, some sauerkraut and 1 more slice of swiss cheese. Butter the outside of the sandwich. Preheat a non stick skillet over medium low heat; add the sandwich and top with another skillet.  Cook until golden brown and the cheese melts, about 3-4 minutes per side.  (Kent loved this one.)

Hope you give them a try.  Enjoy!!
