Remember when grilled cheese meant nothing more than bread, cheese and butter? It turns out that’s all just a starting point for this cheesy hand held favorite. Help your grilled cheeses grow up by stacking them high with all kinds of fun add-ins, such as banana, kale, and meatballs. With just a little creativity, grilled cheese can mature into a cheesy meal worthy of lunch, dinner and even dessert!
Try these grown-up grilled cheese recipes from The Hudson http://www.thehudsonla.com/ for a tasty twist on a kid favorite. They are from Executive Chef Blas Clemente. The method for all of these after you assemble is to grill them.
(and yeah, we know there’s not actual cheese in this one)
