To quote Rachel Ray, "Yum-O"!
Looking for sandwich recipes? Seriously, it's sourdough bread, fruit, and melted cheese. You literally can't mess this up.
My daughter might have chosen butterflies for her birthday party theme, but for the actual night when she turned 5? Grilled cheese, please.
I set up a grilled cheese bar, where every member of the family could choose what to put inside their sandwiches.
Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipes:
- Plain. Just cheddar cheese and bread.
- Brie with nectarines
- Apples, cheddar, honey and dijon mustard
- Avocado, Tomato and Mozzarella with balsamic vinegar
- Pluots and Brie
- Pears with Brie and cheddar
I know the picture says "5 New Ideas for Grilled Cheese" and the list above has 6, but I figured that a plain sandwich was *not* a new idea;)
Once assembled, I grilled them using my Le Creuset Cast-Iron Panini Press , see the nice lines...
and my flat reversible griddle. Had I thought about it, I would have realized that the griddle is *reversible* which means that the other side is a grill and all of my sandwiches could have had pretty grill marks on them.
Oh well, I'm not one to "shoulda, woulda, coulda" myself after the fact.
I've also done this as an adult dinner party with each grown up making and grilling their own sandwich, then I just pull out every nonstick pan I have and away we go.
Do you have any new takes on the traditional grilled cheese that I should make next time?
Thanks for stopping by!
