Most parents understand that a classic grilled cheese sandwich is a staple in a child's diet. The delicious simplicity of melted cheese between toasted bread can bring smiles to little faces. As an adult, the basic grilled cheese can be elevated. Kit Graham's The Gourmet Grilled Cheese Cookbook shares recipes that are more than just bread and cheese.
In this full color cookbook offers 20 original recipes for gourmet grilled cheese. These recipes transform the humble grilled cheese into something more. The book has four sections, vegetarian, meat, seafood, and add-ins.
Knowing that kids love grilled cheese, these recipes offer a perfect way to incorporate new flavors, tastes and ingredients into their meals. From a Southwestern inspired Bacon, Guacamole Grilled Cheese to a vegetable filled artichoke, spinach, and red pepper grilled cheese, the kids can sample new twists on the perennial favorite.
Personally, some of my favorite recipes highlight the sweet and savory components. The poached pear, honey roasted walnut and ricotta grilled cheese is the best grown-up grilled cheese. The fun of this cookbook is that it provides inspiration to think outside of the box.
