UPDATED!! A More Gouda Pickled Grilled Cheese Sandwich December 26 2016, 0 Comments
Here's a simple 5 minute recipe that will transform a boring grilled cheese sandwich into a delicious and gourmet treat featuring pickled veggies from Pacific Pickle Works!
- Sourdough sandwich bread
- White sharp cheddar cheese
- Gouda cheese
- Pacific Pickle Works' Brussizzle Sprouts
- Pacific Pickle Works' Asparagusto
Take a few pieces each of the Pacific Pickle Works' Brussizzle Sprouts and Asparagusto. Chop up the pickled veggies into small pieces and set aside. Grate equal amounts of the sharp cheddar and gouda and set aside as well.
Butter one side of each piece of the sourdough sandwich bread. On an evenly heated griddle (or large frying pan) set to medium heat, place the pieces of bread butter side down. Sprinkle the grated cheese on half of the pieces of bread. This will be your bottom half. Let these cook for a little while so that the cheese becomes soft. After a little while sprinkle a moderate amount of chopped up bits of pickled veggie pieces over the softened grated cheese. Leave enough space so that you can still see plenty of cheese. Take the other piece of bread which should be lightly toasted by now and turn it over and place on top of the sandwich (toasted side up). Let the sandwich continue to cook until the bottom is golden brown, then flip the entire sandwich over to heat the other side until also golden brown.
When the sandwich is perfectly toasted on both sides, set aside and let sit for just a minute so that it doesn't burn your mouth when you eat it. Cut the sandwich in half to expose the gooey and delicious center (those are the best bites!) and serve with a garnish of spears of Asparagusto and wedges of Brussizzle Sprouts and enjoy while still warm.
