Before I update everyone on tonight’s Sunday Dinner, I must play catch-up one more time and write about the yummy grilled cheese I cooked on January 18, 2009. So far, it was probably the best sandwich I have created for Sunday Dinners.
- Brie Cheese
- Goat Cheese
- Apple Slices
- Sliced Tomato
- White Fancy Bread That I Forget the Name of
Brie and apple is a pretty standard combination and translated very well to a grilled cheese sandwich. Add in the tomato and you have a great sandwich. The main problem that I had with the grilled cheese was the amount of goat cheese that I used. At times it overpowered the sandwich when it wasn’t meant to be the main ingredient. The brie was was the star, and unfortunately, it took a back seat.
The bread choices for all of the grilled cheeses, have worked perfectly, including for this sandwich. With the help of my sous chef, we have worked out a method to get the bread crunchy and the cheese perfectly melted. Unless we choose a really off-the-wall bread, I do not see it bringing down the overall taste of the grilled cheese.
Next time, if I were to remake this grilled cheese, I would do my best to only put a very thin layer of goat cheese so that it acted as a supporting ingredient instead of the star. If I am able to do it correctly, this would be an even better sandwich than it already was.

With each sandwich that I have cooked, my technique and recipes have only improved. I have to be happy with this.
garden grilled cheese: A-
This grilled cheese was great and definitely one that I hope to remake in the future. However, the fact that I overdid the amount of goat cheese, which in turn overpowered the grilled cheese and the brie in particular, forces me to knock the grade down from perfect to almost perfect.
