Today, we're diving into the wonderful world of sandwiches and exploring unique and delicious ways to use cheese to take your sandwich creations to a whole new level. Whether you're a cheese connoisseur or just someone who enjoys a tasty sandwich, read on for some cheesy inspiration!
The Melting Masterpiece: Grilled Cheese with a Twist
Let's start with a classic, shall we? A grilled cheese sandwich is the ultimate comfort food, but have you ever tried it with artisanal cheeses like brie, gouda, or blue cheese? Experiment with different combinations, and don't forget to add a touch of honey or fig jam for a sweet and savory contrast. The Cheese Wedge recommends pairing gouda with caramelized onions or brie with sliced apples for an unforgettable grilled cheese experience. (PS: You can try a few of these combinations during our lunch service, Tues-Fri from 11am to 2pm!)
The Mediterranean Marvel: Feta and Olive Tapenade
Transport your taste buds to the Mediterranean with a delicious twist on the classic Greek salad. Spread a generous layer of creamy feta cheese on your sandwich, top it with homemade olive tapenade, fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and a drizzle of olive oil. The salty and briny flavors of feta and olives are a match made in heaven.
The Italian Sensation: Caprese Supreme
Caprese salads are loved worldwide, and now you can enjoy those delightful flavors in a sandwich. Layer fresh mozzarella, ripe tomatoes, and basil leaves on crusty Italian bread. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and a dash of extra-virgin olive oil for a mouthwatering Italian masterpiece.
The Spicy Surprise: Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese
Add a kick to your grilled cheese with some sliced jalapeños and cream cheese. The combination of spicy heat and creamy goodness is sure to tantalize your taste buds. Don't forget to use a hearty bread to balance the flavors and textures.
The Ultimate Umami: Prosciutto and Parmesan
For a sophisticated twist on a classic Italian sandwich, layer thin slices of prosciutto with aged Parmesan cheese, arugula, and a drizzle of truffle oil. The salty, savory, and slightly nutty notes of Parmesan perfectly complement the rich, salty prosciutto. This sandwich is pure indulgence.
