Sampler Platter Grilled Cheeses

This week we did a little departure and created 4 separate grilled cheese sandwiches. It was amazing. This came as a direct result of being given a Grilled Cheese creator basket as a wedding shower present (thanks Ginger!). Going right to left (i know that seems backwards, but keep with me here, there's a reason) the first on the right was mushroom and Swiss, next was a pizza grilled cheese which had mozzarella, pepperoni, tomato sauce, and some more mushrooms. Third from the right was jalapenos, cream cheese, and Monterrey Jack.

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 :(

Mushroom, Swiss and Salami Grilled Cheese

I had the task of finding something interesting and different, so i browsed around at the grocery store until i found some nice Jarlsberg cheese (very much like swiss cheese) and a package of spanish style salami's (one was Chorizo and i don't remember what the other one was). I fried up the mushrooms in a pan along with some garlic and butter, and then also lightly fried the salami slices. Bread was a Bavarian multigrain. One sandwich got one salami and the other was on the second. They were very tasty, and dipped in chipotle sauce and ranch.

Bacon Mushroom Melt Grilled Cheese

This week's sandwich was ever so melty and gooey and delicsious. It had sauteed mushrooms, bacon (allison's did not), herb-and-garlic cream cheese, and a good quality mozzarella cheese. It was flowing all over the plate, it was pretty great.

Pizza Grilled Cheese

We had some left over pizza stuff so we decided it needed to go on a grilled cheese sandwich. Pepperoni, red bell pepper, mushrooms, spicy salami, mozzarella cheese, and home made tomato sauce. Grilled up nice and tasty. Had it with a 2 dips, ketchup and ranch dressing, along with the standard (and required) dill pickle.

Pizza Grilled Cheese

Today's grilled cheese shared the same toppings you'd find on a pizza. Pepperoni, green peppers, mushrooms, hot Italian sausage, mozzarella cheese, and marinara sauce on the inside, and garlic butter on the outside. Grilled it so that the bread was quite crispy, like you'd find on an actual pizza. The marinara was also used as a dipping sauce. It turned out extremely well, click through for a pic of the innards before the top went on (naked grilled cheese!).

Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese

Cooked steak strips (leftovers from the weekend), fresh green bell peppers, sliced mushrooms, and nice plump tomato slices. Added in some bbq sauce on top of the steak too. One was done with classic provolone cheese, and the other with Canadian Swiss cheese.
