So, your going to stay up late eh? Cannot sleep? Have too much or your mind? A geek? Well then. You need to make a midnight grilled cheese sandwich! Now this isnt your normal two slices of wunderbread and kraft american cheese, now, we are going to add a few things..
Ok, first, lets get the ingredients together..
- Wisconsin medium (or sharp) cheddar ( or any other non over processed cheese)
- Bread. I go between 7 whole grain to the low of the low, safeway French toast bread. Today it was the French bread cut.
- Tomato. The fresher the better. Get heirloom if you can.
- Turkey based Pepperoni slices. (yea, really not kidding about this bit)
Ok, so prep your ingredients .. Toast the bread lightly!
Only add a SMALL pinch of salt and black pepper to the tomatoes.
Now here is a trick. Microwave the pepperoni slices in a paper towel. About 20s should be fine. Dry and crispy.
ok.. now the secret step.. The “Lean mean fat grilling machine! ” Yea baby…
Toast the bread, apply a light bit of butter and assemble.
Close the lid and let it cook. After the top had been browned, unplug and let it sit for a few minutes and TaDa!! The perfect midnight grilled cheese sandwich! Enjoy!!! Yea, I’m sure there are better things I could be doing with my time.
As you can see from the comments, I seem to have inspired a similar and it seems just as perfect midnight grilled cheese bagel. Have to thank Max for this image, who, for some reason disappears from my twitter records after a day or two.
