Grilled Grilled Cheese

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.

Grilled Grilled Cheese

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.
