The Most Amazing Grilled Cheese EVER

This week "grilled cheese" has come up again and again. It is like the world was telling me to make one.

First, I was thinking about grilled cheese because of my friend Catherine's grilled cheese/melt bar that she is opening. Then, the Food Network's Unwrapped had a segment on cheese featuring the World's Best Grilled Cheese Sandwich from Mimi's Cafe. You guys, that grilled cheese looked amazing.

I gathered all of the ingredients:

A good bread
Garlic Butter
Grated Parmesan
Sliced Cheese (I used Sharp Cheddar, Swiss and Iris Dubliner's Cheese)

The grocery store didn't have any garlic butter, so I used Brummel and Brown and mixed it with minced garlic.

Spread that on the back of the sandwich and then dip it into the shredded parmesan. (Remember, you don't come here for my picture taking skillz.)

Place the bread cheese side down on the griddle, then add your slices of cheeses to each side of bread. I put my dubliner on one side and then my swiss and cheddar on the other side. Wait until they are sort of melty.

Then put the two sides together and you have the most beautiful, tasty, delicious grilled cheese ever.

I don't like mine too buttery, so the Brummel and Brown worked great. I cannot give you Tommy's exact quote on this blog (hi, mom and Aunt Angie), but basically it was the "most amazing grilled cheese sandwich ever."
Let me know if you guys try it!

You are too cute, and that does look like an amazing grilled cheese sandwich!! I've read in several places lately about the grilled cheese sandwich "growing up" to suit adult tastes!! It must be the new food trend.

I think I need a grilled cheese ASAP! :) Do you put anything on it, or dip it in anything? Growing up we dipped them in ketchup, but my husband puts honey on top and it is SO good. You must try it if you haven't. :)
