Oooey, gooey ribbons of delectable melted cheese sandwiched between butter-crisped slices of sourdough, wheat, rye, and even focaccia and croissant, combined with favorite foods such as bacon, pequillo peppers, guacamole, seasonal veggies, caramelized onions, pears, herbs, and so much more—what is there not to love about the modern grilled cheese?
Inside Grilled Cheese, Please, award-winning cheese expert Laura Werlin presents 50 recipes that elevate the classic grilled cheese sandwich to a culinary center-of-the-plate meal changer through innovative and delicious recipes such as Say Olé (Two Cheeses, Guacamole, Bacon, and a Corn Chip Crust); Brie, Mozzarella, and Sautéed Pears with Blue Cheese Butter; and Cheddar, Chorizo, Apples, and Pickled Onions on Ciabatta. The recipes are divided into seven chapters that are arranged by topics such as Grilled Cheese on the Go, Ethnic-Inspired, Meat and Cheese, and Veggie and Cheese among others. Grilled Cheese, Please features full-color photography, along with sections highlighting the best cooking techniques, melting cheeses, and other "best" grilled cheese insights, as well as a list of restaurants, stands, and mobile trucks across the country where grilled cheese is the focus, not the side dish.
Perfectly timed to coincide with National Grilled Cheese Month, Grilled Cheese, Please encourages melted cheese enthusiasts to expand their grilled cheese horizons by enjoying these riffs on the original and in the process become seduced all over again by the velvety goodness found within.
One thing that always takes me back to my childhood days is a yummy grilled cheese sandwich. I remember coming home from an outing at the beach and my mom making grilled cheese sandwiches with a side of potato chips.
There are times in life when you want the comfort of those childhood memories, but in a more grown up fashion. That is exactly where this book comes in.
While reading through these recipes and looking at all the pictures of the ooey gooey sandwiches, I definitely got hungry. So for lunch today, my sister and I decided on trying one of the recipes out. We went for the Chips and Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich. It was out of this world!
Besides the recipes, she has some great pointers on how to make your grilled cheese sandwiches the best. The ones my mom used to make, she would just put a slice of cheese on the bread. Laura explains that shredded cheese melts much better and gives it a much nicer consistency.
I also found out that this is Laura’s second grilled cheese cookbook. I will definitely be getting her first one.
