The Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Today was Day #2 of our "spring" break. I typed quotes around the word "spring" because if you were to look out my window right now you would think it was January 1st. The pile of ice in our yard is almost as tall as I am. I'm not kidding. Just as the rest of my fellow Minnesotans are doing, I am continuing to remain patient. Spring will come! Spring will come!

In fact, this post provides a giant clue about what my secret project is. Any guesses?

Thanks again for all of the wonderful comments and emails regarding my website. I will not ignore a single one! My boys and I are enjoying a lazy Saturday, so I will share this recipe with you and get back to relaxing on the couch. Important business calls..

Grilled Havarti and Salami Sandwich

Taking the standard grilled cheese up a notch! Total GREATNESS!

Every once in a while, my husband will blurt out a good recipe idea or an idea for this blog and every time, it is brilliant. This sandwich is a great example. Thank you, Husband! I happened to have sun-dried tomato havarti in the cheese drawer and it tipped the sandwich over the edge into total greatness.

Grilled Artichoke Sun-dried Tomato Sandwich

This grilled cheese creation contains two of my favorite ingredients on the planet: sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes. Whenever my friend Laurie and I go out to eat together, we both order the item on the menu that has one or both of these ingredients. They are too mouth-watering to pass up. Sauteed skunk liver with sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes? Yum! Sign me up!

I have a hard time looking at these photos without trying to jump into my monitor and bathe myself in artichoke, sun-dried tomato, cheesy yumminess.

Grilled Veggie & Double Cheese Sandwich

Something simple, yet gooey and tasty! Be prepared to say CHEEEEEEEEEESE!!!

One morning a few weeks ago I was sitting at my desk at work wishing I had something to eat. My stomach was groaning and rumbling, so every couple minutes I would open my drawer in hopes that something edible would magically appear. Magic did not occur that morning, so I began dreaming up a delicious sandwich. I wanted cheese, lots of cheese, and veggies. Something simple, yet gooey and tasty.

This is the sandwich I came up with. I knew we had all of the ingredients at home, so I sped home, made it, photographed it, ate it, and sped back to work, tummy very happy. Be prepared for CHEESE! Yum.

If you love Grilled Cheese Sandwiches as much as I do, I encourage you to check out my Reuben Grilled Cheese. It has changed the grilled cheese sandwich for me forever! MIND BLOWN!

Grilled Cheddar and Cherry Preserves Sandwich

Who would have thought jam would be so good on a grilled cheese?

I wasn't joking when I said I had a grilled cheese obsession. I have opened a door that seems limitless! With creations like Pear and Honey Grilled Cheese and Turkey Veggie Grilled Cheese with Sprouts I have opened a door that seems limitless! This is what Willy Wonka must have felt like when he bit into his first piece of candy. The basic grilled cheese template is my blank canvas and all of the ingredient options are my paints, waiting to adorn my canvas in their own unique, flavorful way. Nothing is off limits. Fruit, veggies, sugar, bacon, seafood, salami, pesto, peanut butter, salsa. The world is my grilled oyster!

This particular concoction took me approximately 18 seconds to consume, from first bite to last. Who would have thought jam would be so good on a grilled cheese?
