A triple grilled cheese with a is a grilled cheese with a twist. Two cheeses on the inside of the bread and one cheese on the outside. How cool is that? But you must be a cheese lover to enter this dark side…
You know when you make a grilled cheese and the cheese oozes out into the pan then it gets browned and crispy? It gets all nutty and good and you find yourself sneaking the good bits? This sandwich has THAT crispy, nutty cheese on the outside of the bread as well as all the amazing melty cheese inside and it’s oh so crispy. Have you ever had a parmesan crisp/frico? Grated parmesan is melted in a pan and it gets crispy and nutty. You can see the recipe for the fricos here.
I used a combination of sharp white cheddar and gruyere because they are 2 of my favorites and they make for a flavorful combination, but the ultimate choice is yours.
Don’t think that I’ve forgotten the best friend that goes with a grilled cheese sandwich. Earlier this week I made 30 minute tomato basil soup earlier this week. This soup is so easy and is made with fresh tomatoes to get the best flavor possible. Get the recipe here >> recipe.
