cheesey melty cheesey


A
pril is grilled cheese month. So if you are worth your salt then you have to make a grilled cheese.



Who hasnt made some kind of grilled cheese in their life? I think it was one of the very first things I learned how to make when I was tall enough to reach the stove - butter the bread, put in cheese slices and toast on both sides.



I grilled some baguette with brie and thin sliced apple. I used a mandoline so the slices were paper thin- well not paper thin more like cardboard thin I wanted them to still have some body. The sandwich came out great! The sweet soft crunch of the apple went so well with the creamy ooziness of the brie and it was all held up with the sturdy crust of the toasted baguette, definitely worth making over and over again, but I think my next one will be fig and brie.

apple and brie I am going to have to try..I like brie and pears, my personal fav is melted brie, bacon and toasted tomatoes on rosemary foccacia,but I think it might be a little better with some of your truffle oil.now I am really getting hungry..

I'm not so sure about cheese and apples, but, I love grilled peanut butter (ask Beth about my peanut butter fetish) and I bet that would be good with apples!

doggybloggy said...

belle: looks like we have the same list

ramya: whats better than half a grilled cheese - a whole grilled cheese

5 star: shhhhhh, I drizzled a bit on the apples...

bina: fruit and cheese are buddies - but I bet a grilled peanut butter apple would be good too.

My all time favorite is grilled cheese with tomato on rye. I think I could make room in my life for this one, too.

Grilled cheese is one of my favs. Talk about comfort food. I love what you've done with the brie and thinly sliced apples.

Grilled cheese was one of my first cooking activities, too. That and a can of campbell's soup--I could feed my sister and I.
