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


Mix cheese, green onion and garlic well. Add cognac and mix again.
Spoon 1/2 the mixture onto 2 slices of bread on the non buttered side and compress with the back of a spoon.
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.
Turn heat off and cover skillet and allow the other side to brown, and the cheese to melt.




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.
