Happy National Grilled Cheese Month!

If you weren’t aware, April is National Grilled Cheese Month–yes, such a thing exists.  To celebrate, we’ve found a recipe that combines two of our favorite things here at Vineyard Market–cheese and beer–into one yummy, gooey sandwich to create a Beer Battered Grilled Cheese!

From Betty Crocker

Ingredients

  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 4 slices of rustic white bread (try our Il Forno Ciabatta Grande)
  • 2 slices of provolone cheese
  • 2 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup Pale Ale Beer
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  1. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel.
  2. On 2 of the bread slices, place 1 slice provolone cheese, 3 slices bacon and 1 slice Cheddar cheese on each. Top with remaining bread slices.
  3. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or to 375°F. In shallow bowl, beat egg, beer, flour and chili powder with fork until smooth. Dip each sandwich into batter, giving it a few seconds on each side to absorb the batter; drain excess batter back into bowl.
  4. Melt butter on hot griddle. Place sandwiches on griddle. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden brown.

YUM! I can’t wait to make one of these bad boys for lunch this weekend! Happy National Grilled Cheese Month! 🙂

    Blimey! I can’t believe there’s an entire month dedicated to grilled cheese (cheese on toast here in Britain). I’ve not had it for years myself. Perhaps I should do a British post in its honour.
