  1. Loaded Baked Potato Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    April 30, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    There couldn’t possibly be a better sandwich creation to end National Grilled Cheese Month than this rich, satisfying delight.

    I wanted to make a grilled cheese that tasted like a loaded baked potato, but the crispy, buttery potato bread, smoky bacon, tangy sour cream, and messy strands of gooey cheddar invoked the textures and flavors of late-night potato skins instead. I was happily surprised, and maybe a little tipsy.

    I’m going to miss National Grilled Cheese Month. No, I’m not crying. I just have cheese in my eye.

  2. Pear and Gorgonzola Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    April 29, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    I think it’s clear by now that I like grilled cheeses with a spoonful of sugar. You can candy coat your sammich with honey, jam, brown sugar, and best of all, fruit. If you start with a ripe, tender pear, the fruit will melt right along with the cheese for a soft and luscious, salty-sweet, flavor-packed filling between two slices of golden, bitter beer bread.

    I’m really going to miss National Grilled Cheese Month.

  3. English Muffin and Blackberry Jam
     Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    April 28, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    Do you remember that vacation you took to Provence, when you lounged in the sun with your lover, picnicking on creamy cheese, a fresh, crisp baguette, and a glass of regional wine? No?

    Yeah, me neither. But I imagine that such a perfect, sunny picnic tastes an awful lot like this grilled cheese sandwich. No, I’m not even kidding. (OK, maybe a little.)

    I split the English muffin with a fork and flipped it inside out to grill the cut side to a perfect golden crunch. The jam swirled into the melted provolone to make a gooey, sticky sauce. Bon appetit!

  4. Spicy Apricot and Bacon
     Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    April 27, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    I think you’ll remember this sandwich’s delightful cousin, the Candied Dijon Bacon Grilled Cheese with Pickled Jalapenos. The two share a number of common features – they’re sweet, spicy, smoky, and salty.

    But today’s creation provides a very important advantage: since you’re not coating the bacon, it takes less time to prepare, and you can make with the eating sooner. Everybody wins!

  5. Goat Cheese, Fig Jam, and Prosciutto
     Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    April 26, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    I bought a jar of fig jam, hoping to make a grilled cheese sandwich that would take me back to YMCA day camp, eating Fig Newtons in my lunch. And I failed.

    This grilled cheese doesn’t for a moment invoke memories of warm, squishy cookies, languishing in a brown bag through verse after verse of “Boom Chick-a Boom.” In fact, this grilled cheese is so fancy, I had to put earrings on before I ate it. Also pants.

  6. Grilled Cheese with Truffle Oil

    April 25, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    This is not just a sandwich, it’s a commitment, and not one to be taken lightly. Make this sandwich for someone you love, but don’t be hasty in choosing the object of your grilled cheese affection.

    Give this rich, luxurious sandwich when you’re ready to make a promise of everlasting love.

  7. Goat Cheese, Apple, and Walnut
     Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    April 24, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    The pillows on my bed are crummy. The stuffing is all flattened, and about 5 minutes after the pillow cases emerge from the dryer, they’re already covered in cat hair. I want pillows that are pillow-y. In fact, I want to rest my weary head on pillows as fluffy as warm, soft goat cheese.

    I swear these thoughts actually occurred to me while I enjoyed this grilled cheese sandwich. As I floated through crisped Italian bread, fluffy goat cheese, gooey honey saturating tender apple slices, and crunchy walnuts, I wished for a good night’s sleep as satisfying and as comforting as this sandwich.

    Can you name another dish as satisfying as a good night’s sleep? I didn’t think so.

  8. Not-Rachel Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    April 23, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    I had this great idea to turn the classic deli sandwich, The Rachel, into a grilled cheese. And then I remembered that I don’t really care for sauerkraut. And I’m not exactly crazy about Swiss cheese. So I substituted spinach for the sauerkraut and provolone for the Swiss, and I was left with a delicious grilled not-Rachel sandwich. The pickle-y-ness of the Russian dressing is not to be missed.

  9. Tuna Melt on Rye

    April 22, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    What can I possibly say about the tuna melt on rye that hasn’t already been said? It’s a classic, and I saw no reason to mess around with it. Creamy tuna salad and gooey American cheese on hearty, fragrant caraway rye is perfect, just the way it is.

  10. Roast Beef and Blue Cheese
     Grilled Cheese Sandwich

    April 21, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

    In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

    I love a classic steakhouse dinner – a cool, crispy wedge salad with blue cheese dressing, followed by a medium-rare steak and a side of creamed spinach. Oh! And a bread basket that’s never empty longer than a minute before it’s auto-magically refilled.

    This sandwich has all your favorite steakhouse flavors, but you can make it at home and it doesn’t cost 8 million dollars. It’s VERY blue-cheesy, and it probably could use more beef and less cheese for more balanced flavor. It’s also very messy. And tasty.
