This post is a bit different from my usual sugary sweet posts. I’m joining the the Crazy Cooking Challenge hosted by Mom’s Crazy Cooking.
I love to cook, almost just as much as I love to bake, so I figured I’d mix it up a bit.
This month’s challenge was a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. The only requirements were that the sandwich contain bread and cheese & that the recipe came from another blog. You have no idea how many Grilled Cheese recipes I drooled over before made a decision. WOW the grilled cheese sure has evolved. When I was kid the only variation was adding a few strips of bacon.
I to try a Goat Cheese & Strawberry Grilled Cheese with Pepper Jelly recipe that I found over at Cooking With Christen. Please hop on over to her blog and show her some love. She shares quite a few tasty recipes. I promise I’m not just saying that because she’s a Louisiana girl too:)
For this sandwich you will need these ingredients:
Butter one side of each slice of bread and build your sandwich in a hot greased pan, panini press or, if you’re like me, the boyfriend’s George Foreman. *rolling eyes & shaking head* (One day I will buy real panini press and that thing will mysteriously disappear)
Cook until the cheese is melted & enjoy.
WOW was this delicious! There was a great balance of sweet and savory flavors. I was a bit skeptical about the bacon, but I really enjoyed extra crunch and flavor it gave the sandwich.
Reminder…Never underestimate the power of bacon:)
MANY THANKS to Mom’s Crazy Cooking for hosting and organizing this challenge!!
I can’t wait to see the what the challenge will be next month.
