Get Toasted! (For National Grilled Cheese Day, That Is…)

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Day, I give you a simple recipe from chow.com that’s both spicy and cheesy–the pillars of deliciousness.  You’re welcome.

Sautéed Jalapeño and Aged Jack Grilled Cheese

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 medium jalapeños, seeded and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1 1/2 ounces grated aged Monterey Jack cheese (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 (1/2-inch-thick, 7-by-3-inch-long) slices pain au levain
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. When it’s heated, add oil and jalapeños. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and sauté peppers until tender, about 5 minutes. Set jalapeños aside and let cool slightly.
  2. Combine Jack and jalapeños in a small bowl. Spread butter on 1 side of each slice of bread.
  3. Return the pan to medium-low heat. Once the pan is warm, add 1 slice of bread (buttered side down), top with cheese mixture, then close sandwich with second bread slice (buttered side up).
  4. Cook until bread is toasted and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes per side.
