Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese Sandwich

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

Welcome to Day 5 of my cheesy, grilled adventure! I started with the classic dish, Chicken Cordon Bleu, and turned it into a flavor-packed grilled cheese sandwich.

I don’t really care much for the traditional Swiss cheese, so I replaced it with Muenster, and it melted like silk sheets under the blanket of chicken and ham. (And now I kind of want a chicken and ham blanket for my bed, like Lady Gaga’s meat dress, except linens.) The roasted garlic mayo gave it a luxurious richness (because it clearly wasn’t rich enough with just ham, cheese, chicken, and butter), and the scallions popped with a stinging, grassy freshness. The flavors were almost as delightful as the textures — crunch, crunch through the bread then tear through the ham. Pull away and a string of mild, milky cheese slaps your chin.
