Who doesn’t love a great, gooey grilled cheese sandwich? I’ve been making them for years, just like everyone else. And I really hadn’t thought of doing something different to them. But then, I came across this recipe from Alton Brown.
Sure, there’s creamy gooey cheese involved. And there’s even a grill involved (though you could make these in a skillet on the stove top, they’re extra good cooked on a griddle on a grill). But the real game changers for me were the addition of ground mustard and smoked paprika. Wow.
This is just an excellent sandwich. Also try my mushroom grilled cheese.
Grilled Grilled Cheese
- Heat a griddle over a lit grill, or a large skillet (preferably cast iron) on the stove top, over medium-high heat.
- Spread the butter one one side of each of the slices of bread.
- In a bowl, combine the cheeses, dry mustard, smoked paprika, and black pepper.
- Lay the bread butter-side down onto the griddle or skillet.
- Top two of the slices of bread with the cheese mixture.
- Close the grill (or cover the skillet) and let cook until the bread is golden brown and crispy and the cheese has melted.
- Assemble sandwiches by topping cheesy slices with plain slices and serve.
