The 30 Day Grilled Cheese Challenge: Day 2, The PBJ & Chevre
April is National Grilled Cheese Month and each day I will be trying a different variation on the classic sandwich. It was brought to my attention yesterday by WAAF Facebook Fan Joe Scimemi that yesterday was also Peanut Butter And Jelly Sandwich Day. Mr. Scimemi expressed his concern and confusion in this post:
"How can it be National Grilled Cheese Month if today you guys said it was National PB & J Day? Come on smarten up! No wonder the terrorists hate us!"
Don't worry Mr. Scimemi, the Terrorist should be pleased to hear that I was able to celebrate both days with my PBJ & Chevre Sandwich. I'm sure there's no law prohibiting observing both days. But I am sure First Lady Michelle Obama would not be pleased with this incredibly fatty snack.
I took regular White Bread and slathered each side with butter. Then added Creamy Style Peanut Butter, Raspberry Preserves, and locally made Chevre Goat Cheese from Sangha Farms. I then used my trusty Wonder Bread Crust Cutter and placed it in a pan with a half stick of melted butter. Browned it on both sides and let it cool for a few minutes. It was pretty damn good. The Goat Cheese wasn't too dominant and mixed well with the Raspberry Preserves.
Again, if you have any suggestions for National Grilled Cheese Month, let me know in the comments section.
