Every single layer of this grown up grilled cheese makes it one fabulous sandwich. Manchego Grilled Cheese will soon be your favorite grilled cheese.
I heard that there was an actual “Grilled Cheese” day and that this was grilled cheese month. Who comes up with this stuff, and why wasn’t I notified earlier? I got to work on my favorite grilled cheese. Do you have a favorite?
I grew up going to religion classes on Saturday mornings. I thought that was the biggest rip off because Saturday morning was when the best cartoons were on television. Not only that, the classes were so boring. All I knew is that I had to memorize a whole lot of stuff and if I didn’t, I could end up in a very warm place at the end of my days. Yikes!
When our classes were over, we went home to a lunch of grilled cheese and tomato soup. Tomato soup was from a can, and our grilled cheese was a skinny yellow piece of cheese on buttered white bread. I loved it. Of course, I loved anything drowned in ketchup.
The grilled cheese that I make now has grown up a bit. My little person self would probably turn up my nose. My big girl self just loves every single layer that makes them fabulous. They start with great bread slathered with a bit of butter on the outside and a smear of fig chutney or jam on the inside. This yummy bread holds together caramelized onion, mushrooms, fresh spinach and Manchego cheese. Manchego is a smooth, nutty cheese that can stand up on its own. Then everything is melted together. The result is an amazing sandwich that is just delicious.
So, I may not have been great at memorizing my religion, but I aced grilled cheese! And, the tomato soup was there too, a bumped up big person version called Easy Tomato Florentine Soup!
Here are a couple other amazing sandwiches recipes!
