As we come into fall I find myself craving comforting foods and what could be more comforting than a grilled cheese sandwich? There are few rules that I follow to create a perfect toasty, gooey, and flavorful sandwich. First of all, I make sure to slice the cheese thinly to help it melt faster. Secondly, I cook the sandwich on a low-medium heat for a long time to ensure that the bread won’t burn and the cheese has enough time to melt. And most importantly I find cheeses that pair well with seasonal ingredients. Here are a couple grilled cheese recipes that are perfect for the fall.
Sweet Loaf Bread, sliced to ½ inch tick
Mt Tam cheese, 3 slices about ¼ inch thick
Estero Gold Reserve cheese, ¼ cup shaved
Fresh Warren Pear, ½ a pear, thinly sliced
Brush olive oil onto bread. Layer Mt Tam on one slice and Estero Gold Reserve on the other. Add Warren Pears on top of the Mt Tam. Close the sandwich.
Add olive oil to a frying pan and bring to low-medium heat. Place the sandwich in the pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Serve with Prosecco.
