Grilled Cheese might possibly be one of the greatest foods of all time. I don't need to justify why I would make multiple kinds of grilled cheese at once, but just to make sure you know I wasn't just gorging on these by myself (I mean, I totally would), it was for the Super Bowl. One of my dearest friends is a vegetarian & after all the meat I was making, I thought this would be such a fun addition. I didn't plan too much ahead of time what I was going to put in each sandwich, I just bought a bunch of cheeses, mushrooms, avocados & tomatoes (that I didn't end up using). Besides being able to completely customize each sandwich, I toasted them in the oven so we could make them in bulk. Here are some of my favorite combos:
The options were endless! I also made a "white" grilled cheese, but seemed to have lost the photo. I also planned on making a bacon tomato grilled cheese, but got lazy. For the most part I used wheat bread in an attempt to make these a tad healthier, but really? Who cares. I served them as halves so everyone could try the different combos. Such a fun & different snack!
