Grilled Cheese on a Snowy Day!!
So, this afternoon, they again, left with friends to go sledding...I decided to try a new sandwich that I found on the blog, Closet Cooking. I LOVE grilled sandwiches so when I spy a new one, I'm game for giving it a try. The blog's author, Kevin, shares his love for tasty food. I found the recipe for his Mushroom Melt on my newest love, Pinterest. I had all the needed ingredients, adjusting a few things since I was using what I had on hand. Go here to see his recipe and a picture that made mine look very wimpy.
In a nutshell I sautéed onion and then garlic and some thyme in a mixture of butter and olive oil, then added the mushrooms...his recipe called for cremini but I just had button mushrooms. Sautee till golden brown and caramelized. I then added just a splash of white wine..maybe a tablespoon. I used some shredded gruyere, shredded parmesan cheese and a slice of provolone. When the mushrooms were done, I removed it from heat to cool slightly, then stirred the grated cheese in as well as a bit of salt and pepper. I also added some fresh spinach to it. I piled all that yummy goodness between two buttered slices of Daves Killer bread and then grilled it like I would any sandwich.
This sandwich was to say the least, AMAZING. The flavor was perfect, with the thyme and splash of white wine giving it a more sophisticated flavor. Oh, not to mention the cheeses. Ooey, gooey goodness!
So I suggest you head over to Kevin's blog and make this sandwich!
