Grilled cheese is a simple dish with a lot of history! The ancient Romans combined bread and cheese but it wasn't until the 1920's when the grilling was added. Now in present day we are taking it a step further by adding mushrooms and special seasoning to continue the evolution of grilled cheese!
Phoebe uses the grill two ways to make this delicious mushroom grilled cheese sandwich. First, you need to grill portobello mushrooms seasoned with a small amount of oil and sea salt. The mushrooms are a great way to reduce the amount of cheese and butter in the sandwich, while adding a ton of flavor and protein. Once the mushrooms are ready you can assemble the grilled cheese sandwich by putting a small amount of cheese, sliced shallots and the grilled portobello mushroom on the bread. Once the sandwich is ready, you can place on high heat on the grill, this will allow the bread to get nice and crusty and melt the cheese. Pull your grilled cheese sandwich off the grill and you are ready for a delicious treat!
