Gourmet Grilled Cheese

It’s hard to beat a good grilled cheese sandwich.   When there’s nothing else to have in the fridge, I can always put together a good grilled cheese.  Jane Epps (from Epps Family Farm) inspired me to make this recipe.  It’s scrumptious.  I’ll tell you what I used, then you can change it up however your chef spirit inspires you!

Another one of my favorite grilled cheese recipes starts by combining sriracha, a little anchovy paste, a little pressed garlic, and sometimes mayonnaise.  Smear that on the bread, put some cheese on, and grill it.  It’s awesome.
