Perfecting Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Perfecting Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Before my leaky gut was healed and Hashimoto’s reined supreme, I couldn’t eat cheese. CHEESE, I say!…one of the best foods on the planet, in my opinion. It was a bit devastating for me to give up dairy at first and I missed out on too many delicious grilled cheese sandwiches. Now that my gut is healed and I’m able to enjoy cheese again, I set out on a mission to perfect the grilled cheese sandwich.

What I’ve figured out?

Grilled Cheese goes great with EVERYTHING….

You can stuff your sandwich with:

  • cherry preserves
  • or artichokes and olives
  • or pesto and tomatoes
  • or fresh sliced pears
  • or whatever you damn well please…

…it almost always works with cheese.

So here’s my basic recipe. Experiment at will!
