grilled cheeses are one of my favorite foods, probably because the involve my two loves- cheese and bread. in fact, when i was a vegetarian for three years, cheese was the one thing that kept me from going vegan. meat, eggs, fish.... all these things i could live without, but the taste of soft, melted cheese was something i knew i could not.
when i went to the brooklyn flea market over the summer, i had a grilled cheese from the milk truck, a traveling grilled cheese truck that sells gourmet grilled cheeses. it was there that i had it- the best grilled cheese of my life.
it had caramelized onions and spicy pickles and it was unlike anything i have ever had.
and yesterday, out of no where, i had a craving for this very sandwich.
of course, being in florida right now, there was no way i could get to this truck, so long story short, i decided to try making my own.
what you'll need:
good quality bread (i used a parmesan cheese bread from a local bread shop)
good quality cheese (i used cheddar from a local cheese shop)
pickles (i used some from a local pickle shop.... just kidding)
good. like, better then an ordinary grilled cheese good. but not milk truck good.
i guess i'll have to do a little tweaking...
