A friend of mine shared a video on Facebook the other day about a chef making a new version of the traditional grilled cheese sandwich. It was posted in the San Francisco Globe newspaper. I watched the video and came up with my own version of this Inside Out Grilled Cheese Sandwich!
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time -5 min; Cook Time – 5-10 min
2 pieces of whole wheat bread (or your bread of choice)
2 slices of sharp cheddar cheese (or your cheese of choice)
1/4 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Special Equipment and Other Items Needed:
Non stick skillet or pan
Preparing Inside Out Grilled Cheese Sandwich:
Melt about 1 T. of butter in a non-stick skillet or pan over medium-low heat. Place both slices of bread on top of the melted butter, with a slice of cheese on each piece.
Once the bread has started to crisp, put one piece of bread on top of the other. Add some shredded cheese on top of the bread.
Flip. Let the melted cheese cook into the bread. Add shredded cheese to the other piece of bread. Flip. Let the melted cheese cook into the bread. Serve hot!
You have GOT to cook this on a medium-low temperature, otherwise, you will burn the cheese!
Clearly this goes great with a nice bowl of Roasted Tomato and Tarragon Soup!
