gruyère grilled cheese


If there are two things I love on my taste buds, it's garlic-y goodness and melted cheese. While browsing one of my favorite foodie blogs (previously mentioned here), I found the perfect recipe to satisfy my taste buds. How good does gruyère and roasted garlic sound? Even better, when it's melted between two pieces of bread. 

Roasted Garlic & Gruyère Grilled Cheese

Per sandwich:
1 head of roasted garlic
2 tbsp unsalted butter
2 slices white bread
1 fairly thick slice of Gruyère cheese (or any other good melting cheese you prefer)

Remove the roasted garlic cloves from the head and mash in a bowl. Place cheese on top of one side of bread and spread the mashed roasted garlic over the cheese, top with other slice of bread. Using a non-stick pan or a cast iron griddle, place on medium-low heat with a 15g (1 tbsp) butter and heat until the butter completely melts. Place sandwich in pan, so that the cheese is closer to the bottom of the pan, then cover the pan with a lid or a piece of foil. Fry until the cheese melts and the bread has turned golden brown, about 3 minutes, and then add the same amount of butter to the pan, flip the sandwich over and fry until golden. Eat immediately, try not to make any excessive moaning noises while enjoying the melted cheesy goodness.
