Hello Everyone,
I realized today I nearly forgot something very important and I have to take it upon myself to make sure no one else forgets. That’s right, I nearly forgot that April is national Grilled Cheese Month. Can you see it, me, forgetting something so important? Forgetting the month were we should be buttering up chewy bread, slathering butter on it and then the star of the show, the cheese. Now I don’t know about you, but I like a good Cheddar grilled cheese dunked into tomato soup. The nice thing about grilled cheese sandwiches is the versatility. You can use just about any cheese and any combination you can think of. A couple of favorites of mine is a sourdough, Harmons Artisans Sourdough is perfect, a thin layer of fresh goat cheese, a grilled chicken breast, fresh avocado, fresh tomato and then . . . wait for it . . . a thick slice of hot pepper cheese. The sandwich is so messy but so worth it. For those who like something milder, a thin layer of fresh goat cheese, Danish Fontina, fresh tomato and chopped green onion. I would love to here about your favorite grilled cheese because you can never have enough cheese recipes. Well, I have to go – I am late decorating my cheese tree.
