Sage Grilled Cheese

7 Jun

This recipe came from my new cookbook called “What the F*@# Should I Make For Dinner”. It is the funniest cookbook I’ve ever read. The instructions are pretty crude (both in language and brevity) so it’s definitely a book for a cook that’s got a little experience under the belt and doesn’t mind some (ok, a lot) of swears. The first two recipes I tried didn’t knock my socks off, but this recipe may have redeemed it. The sage (and sage butter) was a fabulous addition to the cheese and had a ton of flavor. In fact, Seth said it was the best grilled cheese he’s ever had. So try it out!

  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 4 sprigs fresh sage, divided
  • 4 slices country white bread, sliced (I used sourdough)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 6 ounces fontina cheese (I used gouda)

In a frying pan over medium heat, heat 4 tablespoons of butter until it browns, add half the sage, take the pan off the heat, and let the brown butter and the sage do their thing. Coat each slice of bread on both sides with the rest of the butter and some salt and pepper. Chiffonade the remaining sage and divide it and the cheese among your sandwiches.

Discard the sage leaves from the pan, return the pan to the heat, and drop in the sandwiches. Let them get nice and brown. Flip them, cover the pan, and cook for 2 more minutes. Slice them in half and enjoy.
