Halloween is right around the corner, and I've been trying to come up with some spooky concoctions for a creepy new Halloween Grilled Cheese. Luckily for me, some of my amazing followers hooked me up with some crazy green pesto gouda from Amsterdam. It was really tasty, and it works wonderfully for late night snacks and/or Halloween parties!
large slices of gouda pesto verde
sliced cloves of garlic (sauteed in olive oil)
julienned sun-dried tomatoes
slices of organic miche bread
Once you have everything out, go ahead and put on two slices of the cheese on top of a slice of bread. Once it melts, it'll look like some goopy slimy mess.
Then mix together the sauteed garlic and sun-dried tomatoes and sprinkle them on top.
Then add the last of the cheese.
Now it's time for the topper. Add the other slice of miche on top. This is the first time I've ever had organic miche and it was absolutely delicious! I got it at Amy's Bread in Chelsea Market, and it's a mix of wheat, rye, and sourdough, with a super dense middle and a crunchy crust.
Next, butter the bread, sprinkle on half the garlic salt, and turn your stove top to a medium low heat.
Before it's all the way heated up, lay your sammie butter side down. Then butter the other side and sprinkle with remaining garlic salt. Each side will take approximately 3-4 minutes for the bread to brown. Once browned, flip it!
When it's like that on both sides, take it out of the pan and let it sit for a minute. You'll want to do this because the cheese gets super gooey and if you try and cut it, it'll all ooze out.
