Époisses Grilled Cheese and Pepper Jelly Sandwiches
Once you've settled on a grilled cheese sandwich, whether as a fall snack or an accompaniment to a bowl of soup, or a perfect light lunch, then you have a crucial choice: Which cheese should you use in your grilled cheese? We have some ideas.
Cheese curds are small chunks of just-made cheese that haven’t been pressed into a shape. They’re milky and delicious in a grilled cheese like this one, which is spread with a savory mayonnaise and topped with bacon.
A young semi-soft Mahón is perfect for grilled cheese sandwiches. The mildly tangy flavor is particularly good with briny olive tapenade and thinly sliced lomo ham. Try the combo in this great sandwich.
According to cheese expert Laura Werlin, after you bite into a grilled cheese, “the cheese should stretch out past your face as far as your arm will reach.” Classic, extra-sharp orange cheddar is perfect for that. Try it with andouille sausage and crunchy cornichons in this recipe.
