Whip it Up Wednesday: Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Posted by: 

It's Wednesday which means it's time to whip something up!

Today I had lunch with a few of my favorite people.

My husband, my bestie and her husband. We decided to have a little adult time in the afternoon and found ourselves eating downtown enjoying local eats.

The problem is when I read over my choices I bounce back and forth like a pin ball over the menu. What to have, salad, soup, rosemary garlic fries ( no, just steal some of my husbands)!

My indecision led me straight to the adult grilled cheese sandwich and a side salad with pesto salad dressing. It did not disappoint and I want you to be part of my cheesy experience.

To create yummy out of the box "adult" grilled cheese at home try a few of these combos:

mozzarella, pesto and sliced tomato ( make your own pesto and use fresh heirloom tomatoes if available)

brie,caramelized onions, and fig jam

turkey, thin slices green apple, jalapeno jelly

mix three of your favorite cheeses ( it is a crime to not serve this with a side of pipping hot tomato soup)

Ham and Swiss

Mix up your choice of breads. Sourdough, challah buns, cibatta, focaccia or Dave's Killer Bread. Make sure to butter or use olive oil on your bread/buns and grill till golden brown and your cheese is melted and oozing.

Go grilled cheese crazy, have fun, involve the kids and by all means eat together!
