The Ultimate Grilled Cheese ~ French Bread Stuffed with THREE Different Types of Cheese and Grilled to Perfection!
My love affair with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches began a long, long time ago. It was way back in college in the good old dorms rooms. Man it brings back some awesome memories. How did I not realize how much fun college was and how carefree my life was? It was the simplest times and I just wanted to be done. Done and out making money!
To bad the bills are also larger now! Right?
I went to school for Hotel/Restaurant Management so this included a lot of cooking classes, but sometimes you just can’t beat the simplest things in life like a comforting Grilled Cheese.
In the “Dorm” all we had was a shared kitchen. It wasn’t ideal and let’s face it there were some odd people in that dorm that I didn’t really want to intermingle with. My amazing roommate brought a Grilled Cheese maker. Now if you are looking for a gift for a college student please share the grilled cheese love with them and give them one! So simple.
Whenever we had a midnight craving we’d whip up a grilled cheese loaded with cheese because really that ooey, gooey makes the grilled cheese.
Soon the boys learned. The secret was out. Our epic grilled cheeses were the talk of the dorm! We had boys flocking to our room to try one of them. Especially after we had been out to late on a weekend doing things that I shouldn’t speak of.
P.S. Dad could never figure out why I had a “migraine” every Sunday morning when he called me. Shhhhhh. Secrets safe with you right? And he doesn’t know what the internet is!
I set out on a mission to top my beloved simple grilled cheese and did I succeed or what! This Ultimate Grilled Cheese is loaded with three different types of cheese, seasonings and piled onto thick, hearty French Bread!
Now as I let this secret out I hope the boys don’t come flocking to my house for one. My hubs might not be to receptive to that!
