The Honey Bear Grilled Cheese – By Ben Hall from Team Food: http://www.facebook.com/TeamFood
Honey butter Pecorino Romano Grilled Cheese
– 5 mini Keiser buns
– 5tbl Honey
– 3tbl Butter
– 2 cups Pecorino Romano cheese
– 2 Mini Avocado
– 5 cherry Tomato
– 5 slices Bacon
– 10 Cucumber slices
– Salt & Pepper
Slice the buns in half. Melt the butter. Mix the butter and honey. Shred the the cheese. Cut open and peel the avocado. Slice the tomatoes. Mix the tomatoes and avocado with a touch of salt and pepper. Don’t use to much salt because the cheese is very salty. Slice the cucumber. Cut the bacon slices in half. Put the honey butter mixture on the buns. Grill the buns on a high heat for ten seconds or until grilled. Put the buns in a pan and drizzle a little more honey on each piece. Put the cheese on the bottom half of the bun. Put the avocado and tomato mixture on the top of the bun. Put the cucumber slices and bacon slices on the bottom bun. Put the top bun on the bottom of bun. Broil on lo heat with the pan being covered for 14 minutes. I used a cookie sheet to cover the pan. Uncover the pan and let top of the buns brown for 1 more minute. How does that sound? Oh sooo good! That’s Right!
Gourmet grilled cheese is totally the “new panini”. Perhaps even BETTER! I’m so glad that it’s becoming such a delicious new food trend.
Here’s a link to my recipe on the Grilled Cheese Acadmey website. It’s an Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwich called, “Italiano Formaggio alla Griglia.” Enjoy!
Hi Grilled Shane!
I am a TOTAL cheese lover (which is just one reason why I dig your blog.) So how jazzed was I to see you hook up with the Wisconsin Cheese people (little known fact: I am from Green Bay)!
Your the grilled cheese expert so I humbly submit my very simple ideas for your contest. Also my photos are decidedly “meh” and don’t belay the TOTAL yumminess of these little bites of heaven.
Each plate was a trio; I tried to create a variety of flavors on each plate so that it would play together nicely. Each trio was made on a simple french baguette, but if I had to do it over again, I’d mix that up too, using different breads. I used unsalted butter in the pan (no PAM here!)
Grilled Cheese Trio #1
Marscapone Cheese + Fresh Strawberry slices. This is good enough for dessert..a little fresh whipped cream on this would have made for a great dessert.
Goat Cheese+Foie Gras Mousse. Very rich, spectacularly sinful. The mousse’s texture was really more like a pate. It could have been grilled, it was so firm.
Halloumi + Pom, Kamquat, Jalapeno, Ginger chutney (which can be found at weavethousandflavors.com): This was by far the most complex and savory and a really great foil to the sweetness in the Marscapone+Strawberry grilled cheese. I WAS a little disappointed b/c the Halloumi didn’t melt as I’d liked, so next time I’d prepare that on a thinner slice of bread. The chutney I used is very complex, but worth every second to make as its good on lots of things!
Grilled Sandwich Trio #2
Marscapone+Foie Gras Mousse: sweet and savory flavors and a contrasting blending of textures. Very interesting.
Goat Cheese + Fresh Summer Tomato: Nothing beats off the vine summer tomato, except warmed goat cheese. The perfect summer nosh.
Maui Onion+Hallaumi Cheese: Maui onion is my locavore fave, but you can use any sweet onion. I slightly sautee’d them, just enough for a gentle “sweat” as I still wanted them firm. Again, this was a great sweet/savory combination.
