The ultimate comfort food, the most basic of meals, the simplest combination of ingredients. The Cheese Sandwich, and yes I write it with capital letters, can be as elegant or mundane as you wish. Perfect for an afternoon snack, to feed children for lunch and even, cut into small squares as the best hors d'oeuvre to serve with drinks.
I love it on multi-grain bread, spread with Classic Lemon Mayonnaise on the inside and outside of the bread, and filled with 2 slices of white cheddar cheese. That is it.
I have tried it in many other ways, white bread, whole wheat, sourdough.... and all fail to impress me as much as multi grain. It just works better.-
I have also made it with butter and olive oil and a combination of both and it just didn’t do it for me. Mayonnaise coats the bread thinly, allows to cook evenly, and keeps it all moist and delicious. The flavor won’t compete, actually they compliment each other as that bit of citrus flavor keeps it all tasting light and fresh.
Want to turn it into a feast? Add a thin layer of our Almond & Garlic Romesco. The smoky flavor of Romesco paired with cheddar cheese is sensational. We love it for dinner served with warm creamy tomato soup. The perfect easy and comforting meal for a chili winter’s night.
