Cliff’s Famous Garlic Grilled Cheese

I am a self-professed Gleek. Is anybody else with me?? My amazing friend Alana got me hooked on Glee and now I don’t know how I ever lived without it. Every night before bed I pop in a Glee DVD and watch 1 or 2 episodes. Recently, the “Grilled Cheesus” episode did more than entertain me with classics like Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, Billy Joel and Joan Osbourne; it gave me the burning desire to make Grilled Cheese.

I wasn’t lucky enough to see the face of Jesus pressed onto my bread, but I was lucky enough to make probably the most amazing Grilled Cheese sandwich ever; cooked perfectly to a gooey cheese center. As Finn would say, “Dear grilled cheesus. First of all you’re super delicious.”

Note: I wrote a recipe below but it is more of a guideline. Doesn’t everybody know the basics of making a Grilled Cheese? The secret here is in the garlic butter. All of the ingredients are dependent on how many sandwiches you will be making. I bet adding a slice or 2 of bacon would be really good, but I’ve never tried.


Here’s what you’ll need

Start by making your garlic butter spread

Spread the garlic butter on 1 side of the bread and place it butter side up onto another slice of bread with cheese

Place sandwich on pan buttered side down; while it’s cooking spread garlic butter on the top side

Flip sandwich and cook some more, low and slow is the way to go

Looks good!

Serve with creamy tomato soup…ultimate comfort
