Sunday Supper: Ultimate Grilled Cheese

November 3, 2013 | By | Comments (2)

Whether it’s a succulent pot roast, cheesy casserole, or warming, savory stew, we love Sunday supper. It’s a dinner party without the formality, where family and friends gather for easy conversation and good food – lots of it!

This week, make the ooey, gooey, cheesy childhood (and adulthood) favorite, grilled cheese. This tasty sandwich dates back to the early 20th century, where it became a popular staple meal during the Great Depression because of its simple, inexpensive ingredients. Flip through a cookbook from this time and you might find a recipe for “Cheese Dream,” a cheese-covered, open-faced hot sandwich that precursed the modern day grilled cheese.

Recently, chefs and food purveyors across the country have taken the humble grilled cheese to a new level, filling it with all sorts of fancy ingredients. Melt Shop, a gourmet grilled cheese restaurant in New York City, makes a sandwich called “Truffle Melt,” with Havarti, arugula, freshly cracked black pepper, and truffle oil. This is definitely not-your-momma’s grilled cheese.

Whether you like your sandwich with imported French Brie or good old American cheese, the grilled cheese is one of those “feel good” foods that brightens a dreary day. We’ve rounded up our favorite classic and modern grilled cheeses for you to try. To take your sandwich to the next level, dip it in a bowl of our Dressed-up Tomato Soup. Now if that’s not comfort food, then we don’t know what is!
