The New York Post has a great survey of the best grilled cheese sandwiches around the country. The descriptions include some mouth-watering recipe ideas to try at home.
For example, here’s the ‘Madtown Grilled Cheese’ sandwich from the Hopcat in Detroit, MI, described on their menu as: ‘A trio of Wisconsin dill Havarti, smoked Gouda & Muenster on grilled Italian sourdough with apple slices, garlic aioli & honey’. I’ve got to try making that sometime!
For a Midwest variation, try the Hopleaf Bar in Chicago with its Toasted Nueske Ham sandwich, which the Post describes as ‘served on pumpernickel with the titular lunch meat plus nutty gruyere cheese and a tangy apple-tarragon slaw’.
Dammit, it’s not even light outside yet, and my mouth’s already watering! The article describes no less than 20 sandwiches, so I can see I’ve got lots of recipes to try over the next few months.
