COOKING WITH CLORIS -- GOURMET GRILLED CHEESE


Even though summer is right around the corner, we still get those cool rainy days every so often. Days just perfect for grilled cheese. But what Cloris has to offer today is not your mama’s grilled cheese. -- AP

GOURMET GRILLED CHEESE
Ingredients:
sourdough bread, sliced (two per sandwich)
Swedish style mustard
Granny Smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
deli sliced sharp white cheddar
fresh baby spinach
cooked bacon (3 slices per sandwich)
butter

Spread mustard on slices of bread. Layer cheese, apple slices, spinach, and bacon between slices of bread.

Spread a thin layer of butter on top and bottom slices of bread. Grill until cheese melts and bread is golden brown.

Trust me, you’ll never go back to plain American cheese and white bread once you’ve savored this gourmet grilled cheese sandwich! -- AP

The best pizza ever had was in Greece. So good, we ordered a second. It was the cheese! Now you've added another tempting cheese dish. (But I'll always like American.)
