it was a sunny day in seattle, about 3 years ago, when i had my first bite of a beecher's grilled cheese. i was visiting my hubs while he was there for work and i fell in love with everything about the city AND this particular grilled cheese. granted it was one of those super-lovey-weather-couldn't-have-been-more-perfect weekends, but i never quite got the emerald city out of my mind or that cheesy goodness.
fast forward to present day in new york city on another super-lovey-weather-couldn't-have-been-more-perfect days with a baby in tow and a beecher's grilled cheese in hand. we were strolling around our old neighborhood and were delighted to find that beecher's had made a second home in the city so nice, they named it twice.
if you're lactose intolerant or just despise the taste of cheese, well then, i guess this won't interest you. but if you're like me, and eat chunks of parmigiano like it's popcorn, then you most likely appreciate a good grilled cheese. you certainly don't need to rely on a restaurant to indulge. it's got to be one of the easiest and tastiest concoctions to make at home. personally, i love a good manchego with a little fig spread, but at the end of the day, i'd be happy with a slice of cheddar.
check out these mouthwatering at-home grilled cheese concoctions.
