Cooking under the influence is so scary, but pretty fucking fun. Plus, any food that manages to jump through the hurdles of a 40oz and pumpkin spice ale is definitely impressive, like winning a foot relay while being eaten by a shark.
After watching Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life and getting our slant on, Chris and I were super hungry. The tater tot emporium on our block had stopped serving food ages ago, so I mustered up what little resolve I had left and made grilled cheese sandwiches at home. Luckily, I was sort of anticipating this when I went grocery shopping earlier and had a good store of Gruyere cheese and sliced bread ready to go. It’s sort of tragic that I can predict the drunchies with such deadly precision these days.
My mom, being the fancy lady that she is, always makes grilled cheese sandwiches with Gruyere and caramelized onions, so that’s the kind of sandwich that I’m into. (Though if I had bacon, I’d have probably put that in too. Next time!) HERE BE THE RECIPE:
Vy’s Mom’s Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (for two)
- four slices of whole wheat bread
- Gruyere or Swiss cheese, sliced
- 1/2 of an onion, diced small
- melted butter
- salt and pepper
Caramelize the onions: throw them into a small saute pan with butter, sugar, salt and pepper and let them cook until brown.
Construct the sandwich: bread + cheese + onion
Grill it: spoon some melted butter onto the pan and put the bottom part of the sandwich in, then put the top slice of bread on. Press it down for a little bit and flip it over. Press it for like 45 seconds and you’re done!
