Casual Friday - Grown Up Grilled Cheese
April is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich month is the U.S. These sandwiches were first made in the 1920's and then became popular in the Great Depression of the 30's. Sliced bread and processed cheese were affordable.
The original grilled cheese sandwich was actually an open face sandwich. And I was not aware that it was not until the 1960's that the second piece of bread was added. Now that really makes me feel old.
Taking only a few minutes to make, this is a perfect Casual Friday food. I made mine with Camembert, toasted pinenuts and my homemade fig chutney. I melted herbed compound butter in the pan and carefully placed the sandwich in as the butter began to bubble. Serve with a lightlly dressed green salad.
