Monday Munchies: It’s Grilled Cheese Month (via Horny Toad)

BY: Horny Toad

The entire month of April is considered a high holiday here at Horny Toad Headquarters.  Why?  Because it’s National Grilled Cheese Month! This year marks our second annual inner-office grilled cheese-off.

How the competition works: each department brings a Panini machine and fixings for one, awesome grilled cheese recipe.  Magic ensues.  Samples get passed around. Votes are cast.

It was a close race. This year’s winner – Team PDX – came from up north.  Our Portland marketing crew, who may or may not have timed their trip to the Santa Barbara office to orchestrate a complete and total grilled cheese smack-down, brought the serious gourmand vibe with this recipe:

Ingredients:

  • Rustic Italian bread
  • Handful of hazelnuts
  • Port Salut cheese
  • Cheddar-Gruyere cheese
  • Apple-cranberry butter
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh rosemary

Method:

  • - Crush hazelnuts into fine pieces
  • - Brush olive oil onto outside of each piece of bread
  • - Liberally spread apple-cranberry chutney on inside of one piece of bread
  • - Layer Port Salut cheese, diced rosemary and Cheddar-Gruyere cheese
  • - Close sandwich and press outside of each piece into the crushed hazelnuts
  • - Grill to golden, gooey perfection!
