Two things are responsible for shaping today’s post. The first one is that we spend our summers in a teeny tiny village with only one street, a patisserie that only opens three days a week and only makes 10 croissants for the entire village, and 50% of the population is made up of elderly women who sit on folding chairs just outside their front doors and gossip the daylights right out of you. Official town events start at least an hour late every single time, and when the single, 8m2 grocery store runs out of, say, chicken, it’ll take a week before they’ve restocked. Also, when you switch on the eletric oven in our kitchen, the fuses blow. Every single time. And no, I’m not making this up. This place does exist.
But oh, they have the most heavenly, fresh picked peaches and tomatoes, and they make their own olive oil, capable of reducing grown men to tears. Oh, and this:
Alas, great culinary feats are utopic. Also, pardon the poor quality of the pictures, which I had to take with my phone. I promise though, the recipe is as good as ever.
On the other hand, we have collided with the realization that, cheese devoted blog though we be, we have not yet featured the most evident of all cheese recipes: the Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Epic failure, indeed. We hope we are still in time to mend our wayward ways.
Of course, posting the recipe for a basic grilled cheese might, in some remote and obscure corner of the cooking world, be considered excessively simple, primitive surroundings nonwithstanding.
So we upgraded it.
Ladies and gentlemen in your modern day kitchens, I give you, the Double Cheese Grilled Cheese Roll.
Or melty cheese heaven.
Double-Cheese Grilled Cheese Rolls
Prep time: 15 minutes
You will need:
- 4 slices sandwich bread
- 4 slices goat cheese
- 4 slices Havarti cheese
- some butter, as needed
First off, we need to prep the bread to make it roll-up ready. Lay out your slices on a flat surface and flatten them with a rolling pin.
Top with a slice each of Havarti and goat cheese.
Then roll up tightly, if you can, or loosely if your bread begins to break, as mine did.
Meanwhile, melt some butter in a frying pan, then place the grilled cheese rolls seam-side down in the pan. Fry until nicely browned on all sides and cheese is all melty.
Set aside for a few minutes for the cheese to set.
