Breakfast Grilled Cheese

Today it was decided that breakfast was on the table. I also decided it was high time to try out my new cast iron skillet. It worked out pretty well, as i had some heavy bacon presses heated up too for the top of the sandwiches, to squish them down a bit, sort of like a panini. We had some nice multigrain rye bread to load up with breakfasty type ingredients. I cooked up some breakfast sausage for Allison's sandwich and some crispy side bacon for my own. I also tossed a few eggs in a pan and scrambled them (using the Gordon Ramsey method, as best as I could remember).

Breakfast Grilled Cheese

Take 2, this time with more breakfast. And with more Allison (last time she was away visiting friends). Our sandwiches had fried eggs on top (left just the perfect amount of over-easy to ensure it was still gooey without being all over the place) along with lots of cheddar cheese. Mine had bacon and hers had breakfast sausage, split in half lengthwise.

Tomato and Sausage Grilled Cheese

I picked up some roma tomatoes at the grocery store, split them down the middle, and roasted them in the oven with fresh garlic, sage, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. After they cooled i removed the skins. I also boiled some mild Italian sausages (just to get them cooked through), then sliced them lengthwise and fried them on the griddle a little bit to add some crispiness and colour. Added the both of them, as well as some 3-cheese blend (mozzarella, provolone and parmesan) to a few slices of multigrain bread and we had some very tasty sandwiches.

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!).
