I’m thrilled to tell you that I have partnered with Wisconsin Cheese to tell you all about the 2017 Grilled Cheese Recipe Showdown! Today I’m sharing one of our favorite breakfasts with you, the Breakfast Grilled Cheese.
The Breakfast Grilled Cheese starts with a slice of buttered sourdough bread sprinkled generously with Wisconsin colby, monterey jack, and cotija cheeses. Next, add a layer of fluffy scrambled eggs and spicy hot breakfast sausage. Finish with another layer of the cheeses, a small handful of arugula or baby spinach, and a little more cheese. Top the sandwich off with another slice of buttered sourdough. Cook until melted and gooey inside, while crisp and lightly browned on the outside. I dare you to resist this one.
This grilled cheese is somewhat spicy, a wee bit hot, and wonderfully filling. However, the combinations for this sandwich are virtually unlimited. Not a fan of sausage? Use bacon instead. Want to really kick up the heat, drizzle your favorite hot sauce onto the scrambled eggs and toss gently to coat each bite. Green vegetables aren’t your thing? Just skip the greens. (or better yet, send them my way!)
