This week’s theme in What’s Cooking, has been all about comfort food. I was going to whip up some tacos tonight but opted to fry up some of the kale that has been sitting in my fridge. And what to serve with the kale? I mean, you can’t just have kale on its own.
I decided to opt for a delicious grilled cheese sandwich. But not just any grilled cheese sandwich, no. I experimented and came up with this great Corned Beef and Grilled Cheese sandwich. And it was delicious. I probably should have cooked it more – but I was afraid it was going to burn.
It’s so easy to make. If you’re looking for something to pair it with – check out the Creamy Tomato and Vegetable Soup I made the other night. It may have been the best soup I ever made.
- 2 pieces of bread – Italian bread is awesome
- 2-4 slices of cheese (cheddar, mozza or even goat cheese)
- 4 slices of corned beef
- A few drops of olive oil
- About 1 tspn of butter or maragarine
- Seasoning: pepper, basil, garlic Club House mix
- Heat up a few drops of olive oil in a skillet on low heat.
- Apply the butter or margarine to both sides of the bread slices.
- Place the bread into the skillet and let cook until butter is melted.
- Flip over and cook the other sides.
- Add the cheese and meat onto the bread slices.
- Season with basil and black pepper.
- Close the bread pieces and form a sandwich. Press down using a pancake flipper.
- Cook until both sides are golden brown OR until the cheese has melted. Careful not to let it burn.
Tonight, I opted to serve this sandwich with a side of cooked kale. I added some seasoning, some Lima beans and sausage to mix things up – and also to use up some leftovers before they go bad. A minor downside to single living!
As with most of my recipes, this sandwich is easy to make and very versatile. You can add more than one type of cheese. I love the taste of basil and goat cheese together.
Sorry for the picture quality. The light above my oven blew out and I’m waiting patiently for it to be fixed! I also really need a good tripod for my camera.
