In my opinion, a cold day means warm grilled cheese sandwiches. There is nothing better during the colder months than an ooey-gooey perfectly golden brown grilled cheese. There are thousands of ways to create this classic and iconic dish.
My mom made the best grilled cheese sandwiches; however, I think this recipe may have her beat. We have come a long way from the typical grilled cheese sandwich made with white bread and American cheese. Well, I decided to remix this fall favorite. I love mushrooms! And if you don’t, then you can leave this ingredient out.
In this recipe, I’ll also be using Pepper Jack cheese, which gives this sandwich a slight hint of spice. I used a lot of cheese because I really like my grilled cheese sandwiches cheesy. If you want to take the sandwich to another level, simply pair it with a great soup or salad.
