The other day I was working on the house and lunch rolled around. I needed something filling as I was starved. I didn’t want meat, but still needed my protein fix. Then a light bulb went on in my head since we have about seven types of cheese in the fridge. Bread + cheese = gooey goodness. Yes, that’s the plan!
The typical grilled cheese involves cheddar, but I didn’t have any. No need to freak out though. I had goat cheese, havarti, and swiss. Those three stood out to me from the cheese bin. I made two “patties” of havarti and swiss and spread goat cheese in between them for the bulk of the sandwich.
Another thing I like to do with sandwiches to keep them crisp and hot is to stick them into a 300 F oven to melt the cheese more. It still keeps the crust crispy and even crisps the inner bread more.
Cheese oozing out from the side is ALWAYS a good thing ;). Another success for the triple whammy theme.
It was going to be difficult to top lunch for the day, but dinner was just as good.
Triple Whammy Grilled Cheese
4 slices bread of your choice
Butter to spread
4 slices Havarti
4 slices Swiss
2 T regular goat cheese (Chevre)
Preheat toaster oven to 300 F.
Lay out your cheese on a board so that one slice of havarti is paired with one of swiss. You should have 4 “patties”. Butter the bread on one side for each slice. Lay one patty on the non-buttered side, spread 1 T goat cheese, then place another patty on that and cover with bread.
When you have your two sandwiches made, place on a preheated non-stick skillet on medium high heat. Cook about 2-3 minutes or until the bread has browned well. Cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side.
Place sandwiches in the oven for about 3-4 minutes or until cheese starts to run.
