My “National Grilled Cheese Day” Recipe

So apparently it’s #NationalGrilledCheeseDay and while I usually don’t go in for such internet drivel, this one is closer to my heart than most  ; ).  And so I share with you my favorite Grilled Cheese ingredients;

  • butter
  • pumpernickel bread – or multigrain
  • three or more cheeses – any combo of these, with the Gorgo being mandatory: extra sharp cheddar, gorgonzola (or regular bleu, in a pinch) , muenster, mozzarella, herbed feta, jalapeno pepper jack
  • the lightest dusting  of garlic powder

Add the light dusting of garlic powder to the bread. Layer up the cheeses.  Grill in a pre-heated, pre-buttered  cast iron skillet until cheeses ooze forth from between the bread and bubble on the surface of the skillet. Enjoy with a glass of well-chillled Gewurztraminer or Riesling, and mixed greens, with a slightly sweet dressing to balance the savory cheeses.   Of course, to Africanize the experience, serve with a Jacquard batik napkin.  You’re welcome…
