Turn Grilled Cheese Into A Casserole
Grilled cheese is one of those sandwiches that's good for lunch or dinner, but sometimes a sandwich just isn't filling enough. That's when it's time to pull out a casserole dish and turn that sandwich into something special that's filling, too.
I adore Paula Deen. The way she talks, the way she acts and especially the way she cooks. Why do I love her cooking, you ask? Well, that's because the woman uses so much butter and cream, every one of her dishes is the ultimate comfort food. So of course, she'd tackle one of my favorite comfort foods and make it even better. No, it's not macaroni and cheese, though that is definitely in my top five. No, my favorite comfort food has to be the grilled cheese sandwich.
While my favorite version of the classic sandwich is sliced American melted over heirloom tomatoes on a nice thick wheat bread, I'm more than happy to substitute... well... just about any cheese under the sun. So when Paula (yes I feel like I know her well enough to call her by her first name) decided to take a grilled cheese and turn it into a casserole, I knew I was going to love it. And Oh. My. God. I was so right. Yes, she added ham and used Gruyere instead of American, but it was absolutely out of this world. It was so good in fact, it may have knocked grilled cheese out of the top spot on my favorite comfort foods list. One bite and I bet it'll be on your list of favorites, too.
