Grilled cheese sandwiches are a classic! Who doesn’t love two buttery grilled pieces of bread encasing ooey, gooey, melted cheese! It’s a sandwich worth celebrating and today is the day to do it.
Today is National Grilled Cheese Day and I have a collection of recipes to share with you as part of the celebration. Now, you can change up the classic by getting creative with the bread you use to make it and your choice of cheese. Plus, other ingredients can also be placed included in the middle. It can take the classic to a whole new level.
So, I am changing up the classic today my using raisin bread along with havarti cheese. Havarti has a nice buttery flavor. Then I added in some deli sliced chicken and some red pepper jelly. It may just sound like a strange combination, it’s divine. I am currently in love with this sandwich.
It has a nice combination of sweet and savory. The red pepper jelly doesn’t really add heat to the sandwich. It isn’t really spicy, but just adds another level of flavor that makes it magnificent.
I have also added a collection or other tasty recipes for you as part of this national grilled cheese day. I must say, I was drooling over the other options as I was writing this post!
- 8 slices of raisin bread
- 4 Tbsp red pepper jelly
- 12 oz of deli sliced roasted chicken
- 4 slices of Havarti cheese
- 4 Tbsp of butter
- Lay out the bread and spread red pepper jelly over 4 of the slices of bread. Top the slices with the pepper jelly with the sliced chicken and then follow with a slice of cheese.
- Top each with on of the remaining slices of bread.
- Butter out side of the sandwiches. In a skillet over medium heat, toast both sides of the sandwiches until golden. Serves 4.
