Who doesn't love a great grilled cheese sandwich? I found a fabuous recipe - for adult grilled cheese. A word of caution: forget about carbs and the calories on this one. You just have to go for it and enjoy!
It's a recipe I found in my favorite chef's new book! Ina Garten's How Easy Is That cookbook. It's a great recipe for friends and family. Again, keep in mind, it's not for the diet conscious!
What's In There?
Combine mayo, mustard, Parmesean, salt and pepper in a bowl. Lay 12 slices bread on a board and spread each one lightly with butter. Flip the slices and spread each generously with the mayo mixture.
Grate cheese in a food processor with the largest grating disk and combine.
Distribute bacon evenly on half of the slices of bread.
Pile 1/3 cup of grated cheese evenly on top of the bacon and top with remaining bread slices, sauce side down.
Heat electric pannini press and toast. Allow to cool for 2 minutes and serve.
(If you don't own a pannini press, just toast in a grill pan or skillet)
Serve with a mixed green salad and you have a perfectly grown-up summertime meal!
