Grown Up Grilled Cheese

As August fades away, so do the lazy days of summer. It seems that as soon as September 1st rolls around, life magically gears back up to full speed. With all the running around, errands and extracurriculars that fill up your calendar, the last thing you want to do is spend hours in the kitchen.

This Autumn, Alexian invites you to make more time for the things - and people - who matter most by embracing one of America’s most-loved foods: the grilled cheese. Our collection of elevated grilled cheese recipes makes it effortless to put a family-friendly, flavor-packed meal on the table in just a few minutes.

Tips for Making a Great Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

Be mindful of the bread! It’s the first thing your palate touches and it can make or break a sandwich. While you can’t go wrong with a quality loaf bread, breads like brioche also make for a tasty treat.

Cook it on low heat. Many cheeses take a while to melt, and you don’t want the bread to crisp up before the cheese is ready. Cook the sandwiches on medium low heat until just melted, then turn it up for the last couple of minutes to get that perfect crisp.

Apply the butter directly to the bread! It’s a sure way to get that beautiful golden crisp you want. Olive Oil is a great substitution for butter if you prefer.

Grilled Goat Cheese

A guilt-free grilled cheese? No, it’s not too good to be true. Our Eggplant & Goat Cheese pâté makes an incredible base for a delightful sandwich packed with protein, vegetables and creamy goat cheese goodness.
