Curdis Cooks: Brie’s Ultimate Grilled Cheese

This week’s recipe comes from our Cheese Buyer and Lead Monger, Brie. Deceiving as the title sounds, there is no Brie in this sandwich. Brie, our buyer, creates her Ultimate Grilled Cheese from a blend of Montgomery’s Cheddar, Chällerhocker, and Coastal Cheddar. Monty’s provides a robust, meaty flavor, while Coastal Cheddar balances it out with some sweetness, and Chällerhocker pulls it all together with buttery flavors and silky texture. This blend of cheeses is enhanced by the addition of scallions, which steam up al dente while the cheese melts between two thick, rich, chewy slices of sourdough (A&J King, of course!). Pair this sandwich with your favorite jam, chutney, or condiment, and you’ve got a super easy lunch - or breakfast, or dinner, or snack … Brie’s fave picks are a nice Dijon mustard or Worcester Sauce for dipping.
