Grilled Cheese

 
GrilledCheese

I’m not sure if anyone really needs a grilled cheese recipe, but a couple of flavour inspirations can go all way to revamping the slice of processed cheese. Here are a few of my favourite “adult” grilled cheese combos. Happy grilling!

Truffle Lovers

  • Smoked prosciutto

  • Truffled cheese

  • Sliced truffles

  • Truffle honey

Perfect Beer Pairing (or wine)

  • Caramelized onions

  • Sliced pears

  • Irish stout cheddar

TIP: Grill the sandwich on each side before putting in a 350°F oven for a couple of minutes. This will ensure maximum gooeyness in the centre.

Truffle Cheese Ball

I don’t think it’s possible to show up with a cheese ball at a party and it not be star of the party! You don’t even have to tell how easy it was to make. Shhhhh. This version also has a kick of healthy nutrition with some wheat germ added to the crust.

Truffle Cheese Ball with Wheat Germ

  • 340g cream cheese

  • 1 ½ cups shredded truffle cheese

  • 2 tsp white truffle oil

  • ¼ tsp salt

Coating

  • ½ cup nuts, toasted (pecans/walnuts)

  • 1 tbs wheat germ

  • 2 tsp rosemary, finely chopped

  • 1 tsp garlic salt

  • Dash of cayenne

  • Sliced almond slivers (optional)

In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese, shredded truffle cheese and white truffle oil with a hand blended until smooth and combined. Shape into a ball and refrigerate for an hour.

To make the coating, combine toasted nuts, rosemary, garlic salt, cayenne and wheat germ in a spice grinder, or small food processor, and pulse until just combined.

Roll the ball in the coating. Decorate with sliced almonds.

Serve with your favourite crackers or veggies.
