Adult Grilled Cheese

2 slices of artisan bread per person (this is a heavy lunch, our slices were about 3″ x 4″ x 1/2″ thick) b
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese (you can use gruyere or any full bodied cheese, exce
1 medium green onion sliced thinly and chopped
2 tablespoons cognac or scotch (we used Palinka) - anything with a good full taste will do
1/2 clove garlic minced finely

Preparation

1
Mix cheese, green onion and garlic well. Add cognac and mix again.
2
Spoon 1/2 the mixture onto 2 slices of bread on the non buttered side and compress with the back of a spoon.
3
Put the second slice of bread on top, butter side out.

Heat cast iron skillet to medium high (or if you have a panini maker). Carefully place sandwiches into the pan and press down. Brown side one and flip.
5
Turn heat off and cover skillet and allow the other side to brown, and the cheese to melt.

About

Originally from Cottage Life Magazine. Now I don’t have the exact recipe, but it’s not rocket science so I wing it and I’ve been making it ever since. It’s really easy, and you only put into it what you like! I like a little tomato salsa with my grilled cheese, and since we ran out of the store bought kind, I whipped up one I refer to as Kitchen Sink Salsa , because I threw everything I had in the fridge into it. Oh, by the way, it’s adult grilled cheese because there is booze in it (no wonder I like it so much!). For this version, we used JT’s No Knead Olive Bread.
