The next couple days are going to be pretty hectic with two big work events consuming my life. But before I run off to deal with this thing called a “day job”, I thought I’d leave you with some easy grilled-cheese inspiration. And yes, pimento cheese is involved. How could I not after Fryday’s post?
We’ve been eating a lot of sandwiches these days. You know, being house poor and all. But we’ve done a pretty good job of mixing our sandwich fixings up that it’s actually been a lot of fun, tasty too.
In most cases, Brian and I enjoy our sandwiches the same way, but when it comes to grilled cheese, we have very different tastes. I like mine with pimento cheese, and Brian prefers the goat variety. Because I’m an equal-opportunity grilled-cheese eater, you get to see both.
My pimento grilled cheese is easy, really. All you need is bread, a generous helping of pimento cheese (which I get from Costco – or you can make your very own using this recipe), tomato slices and american cheese, because you can never have too much cheese.
Throw in a buttered pan, and you know the rest.
Yes, yes, yes. Warm and gooey pimento cheese, tomato and two slices of crisp bread. What more do you need?
Here’s Brian’s version. Goat cheese, plenty of sundried tomatoes (we can’t even agree on the state of our tomatoes), and a slice of American cheese wedged in the middle (on that we do agree).
Brian is an American who wishes he could be italian, so his grilled cheese of choice is only fitting. More evidence of Brian’s wannabe-Italian ways in this home video from our honeymoon.
Alright, friends. Are you on Team Pimento or team Goat Cheese? Both are great, if I’m being perfectly honest, but since you can only have one at a time (or do you?), allegiances must be picked.
Wishing you a good start to the week. Fingers crossed I survive mine.
