And now to my weekend fun.
I went to a grilled cheese invitational this weekend in Los Angeles. Do you want to talk about incredible smells and tastes? As well as colorful people?
In addition to the competition, there was cheese poetry, music, a number of people wearing crowns, a beer and wine pavilion.
Doesn't this sound like the perfect setting for a murder mystery?Who's Killing the Great Grilled Cheese Chefs? [Okay, the title's been taken...]
Did anybody see that movie, Who's Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? Drop-dead funny.
WITH BACON ON RAISIN BREAD
2 slices raisin bread
2 tablespoons butter
2 slices crisp bacon
2 oz. Tillamook Cheddar cheese
Grill bacon on medium. Note: As mentioned above: I slip the pieces into a sauté pan, cover with foil, and set a smaller sauté pan on top. Grill for 5 minutes. Remove sauté pan and foil. Flip the bacon. Replace the foil and smaller sauté pan and grill for 5 more minutes.
In the meantime, butter two slices of raisin bread on one side only.
Remove bacon from saute pan and drain on paper towels.
Place one slice of raisin bread, butter side down, on grilling surface. Layer cheese, bacon and cheese. Top with raisin bread, butter side up.
Grill on low to medium for 5 minutes. The raisins might look dark but they are not burnt. Flip the sandwich and grill for another 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve immediately.
