Gourmet Grilled Cheese Night!

After watching Chopped Thursday night, my bf came up with a very creative date night idea: Gourmet Grilled Cheese Night! After brainstorming lots of fun twists on the ol’ classic, we decided to do this for dinner Friday night.

First off, ingredients!

Grilled Cheese

  • Ezekiel bread
  • Prosciutto
  • Tomatoes
  • Baby bella mushrooms
  • Mild cheddar cheese

On the side: dill pickles, Amy’s Chunky Tomato Bisque, and Amish Potato Salad

He had a great idea to “grill” the prosciutto and sauté the mushrooms before we added them to the grilled cheese. The grilled prosciutto tasted very similar to country ham!

Let the grilled cheese making begin!

Check out the thickness! Grilled cheese will never be the same after last night!

Angel food cake, strawberries, cool whip, and chocolate cookies and cream ice cream for dessert!

Needless to say, after all of that food we were in a food coma! But it was soooo goood! Here are some other ideas for gourmet grilled cheese:

  • Mexican Grilled Cheese: pepper jack cheese, mashed avocado, refried beans, tomatoes and salsa to dip it in!
  • Philly Cheese Steak Grilled Cheese: steak, caramelized onions and mushrooms, and lots of CHEESE
  • Mediterranean Grilled Cheese: kalamata olives, tomatoes, feta, and spinach
  • Caprese Grilled Cheese: mozzarella, basil, and tomatoes

I’m off to get some work done. Have a nice Saturday! Smile
