Ok. Let's try a recipe post!
Manchego & Sourdough Grilled Cheese Sandwich
For each sandwich:
2 slices of good quality sourdough bread
Manchego cheese (A Spanish sheeps milk cheese)
1 -2 T. Extra virgin olive oil
Panini grill is preferred, but any other sandwich press is ok.
For each sandwich, slice 2 thick slices of sourdough bread. Brush both sides of bread slices with olive oil. Add slices of Manchego. The amount of cheese varies according to taste. Grill the sandwich to your prefered state of toastiness.
A 6 month aged Manchego is what you're looking for. You can vary the breads according to taste. One of my favorite variations uses an olive - rosemary bread. But remember to keep it simple!
I began eating a basic variation of this sandwich while living in Spain as a teenager back in the 1970's. I accidentally found out one day that Manchego makes the finest grilled cheese I've ever tasted! It has a cheddar like creaminess, but with a mellower and nuttier flavor. The tang of good sourdough plays of the slight sweetness of the Manchego. This sandwich has become my ultimate comfort food over the years.
