Goat Cheese, Fig Jam, and Prosciutto 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.

I bought a jar of fig jam, hoping to make a grilled cheese sandwich that would take me back to YMCA day camp, eating Fig Newtons in my lunch. And I failed.

This grilled cheese doesn’t for a moment invoke memories of warm, squishy cookies, languishing in a brown bag through verse after verse of “Boom Chick-a Boom.” In fact, this grilled cheese is so fancy, I had to put earrings on before I ate it. Also pants.

Goat Cheese, Apple, and Walnut 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.

The pillows on my bed are crummy. The stuffing is all flattened, and about 5 minutes after the pillow cases emerge from the dryer, they’re already covered in cat hair. I want pillows that are pillow-y. In fact, I want to rest my weary head on pillows as fluffy as warm, soft goat cheese.

I swear these thoughts actually occurred to me while I enjoyed this grilled cheese sandwich. As I floated through crisped Italian bread, fluffy goat cheese, gooey honey saturating tender apple slices, and crunchy walnuts, I wished for a good night’s sleep as satisfying and as comforting as this sandwich.

Can you name another dish as satisfying as a good night’s sleep? I didn’t think so.

Not-Rachel 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.

I had this great idea to turn the classic deli sandwich, The Rachel, into a grilled cheese. And then I remembered that I don’t really care for sauerkraut. And I’m not exactly crazy about Swiss cheese. So I substituted spinach for the sauerkraut and provolone for the Swiss, and I was left with a delicious grilled not-Rachel sandwich. The pickle-y-ness of the Russian dressing is not to be missed.

Tuna Melt on Rye

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.

What can I possibly say about the tuna melt on rye that hasn’t already been said? It’s a classic, and I saw no reason to mess around with it. Creamy tuna salad and gooey American cheese on hearty, fragrant caraway rye is perfect, just the way it is.

Roast Beef and Blue Cheese 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.

I love a classic steakhouse dinner – a cool, crispy wedge salad with blue cheese dressing, followed by a medium-rare steak and a side of creamed spinach. Oh! And a bread basket that’s never empty longer than a minute before it’s auto-magically refilled.

This sandwich has all your favorite steakhouse flavors, but you can make it at home and it doesn’t cost 8 million dollars. It’s VERY blue-cheesy, and it probably could use more beef and less cheese for more balanced flavor. It’s also very messy. And tasty.

Pepperoni Pizza 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.

Pepperoni pizza + grilled cheese sandwich = Really? You even have to ask? This delightful lunch provides the spicy, tangy flavors of pizza wrapped in the buttery crunch of a grilled cheese sandwich.

The salami sandwich I posted yesterday came out a little oily, so I used turkey pepperoni slices instead of regular pork pepperoni, and the lower-fat substitution did the trick. Turkey pepperoni has the flavor and texture of pork pepperoni, but with no neon-orange oil slick.
