Brie and something Grilled Cheese

This sandwich was super melty. Brie was layered on thick onto homemade break along with something else which i can't remember right now.


CheeseSteak Grilled Cheese

This was a pretty epic sandwich. I bought a large bagette (you can only see half of it here, the other half is directly behind it), cooked up a nice ribeye steak on the bbq, some mushrooms, and layered it all together. I believe there was also some cream cheese in there to make it extra melty. Well, it should have been epic, but i let the cast iron plate on the bottom get far too hot and it ended up burning the bread :(

Turkey and Tomato Grilled Cheese

It's been a while since i actually ate this sandwich, so i might misremember, but i think it was fresh turkey breast, tomato, herb and garlic cream cheese, and cheddar cheese. It sure was melty though.

Crab Cake Grilled Cheese

Allison had a bit of a epiphany this week and decided that we needed to try Crab Cake Grilled Cheese. I've never made crab cakes before. After looking at various recipes online i made up a batch of them (crab, sweet red peppers, lemon zest, lemon juice, cayenne, panko bread crumbs, crushed saltine crackers, mustard powder, an egg, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and some fresh dill, parsley and chives from our herb garden outside), dusted them with flour, and fried them in a half an inch of vegetable oil in a cast iron skillet. They turned out pretty perfect.

Joe Fromaggio's Redux

We decided that we needed to go back and try another sandwich this week. I had the Buff Chicken, which has Pepper-Jack cheese, Hand-torn Roast Chicken, Blue Cheese Dressing, and Hot Wing sauce. I had the cheddar and ale soup on the side, because it's delicious.

Basil, Tomato, and Mozzarella Grilled Cheese

Tonight was a repeat of a classic, Basil, Tomato, and Mozzarella. Made this with basil from my herb garden in my yard. Too bad the tomatoes aren't ready. The plants aren't even a foot tall yet! Some nice soft Italian bread rounded out these sandwiches. I need to remember to dice the basil though, or it just comes out in one bite.

Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese

Tonight we were not feeling like cooking so we decided to go out for GCD. We went to Casey's in Waterloo and found that they had a nice pulled pork grilled cheese. It was quite tasty.

Ham and Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Today was a nice and plain one, just ham and cheddar.

Roast Chicken Grilled Cheese

Took a little tour of the grocery store looking for inspiration for this one. First thing i decided on was a roast chicken, which they have fully cooked. Picked up a chipotle flavoured one and shredded it (well, half of it). Next up was some grape tomatoes, which i sliced in half (and despite that, they popped out of the sandwich like crazy). Third item on the sandwich was a mild green chili pepper, sliced thin and grilled. The cheese was a nice soft Gouda, sliced thick. Some left over shredded cheddar made it in there too.
