The Monster Grilled Cheese and Tomato Portabella

Mushroom and Prosciutto Grilled Cheese Sandwich 1 500 300x199 The Monster Grilled Cheese and Tomato PortabellaMonster in Size, Massive in Flavor 

By Matt Goldstein

When you eat a Monster Grilled Cheese, there is no need for seconds.  This is the first grilled cheese you will eat that is a complete meal.  First, you want to start with 2 large pieces of Vienna style size multi grain bread with different types of seeds.  The seeds make a major statement when grilled in the sandwich.  The Vienna bread slices must be big enough so you can fit 2 slices of American Cheese on each slice.  Yes, that’s 4 slices of cheese.  The Monster Grilled Cheese is a meal! 


The Ingredients:

2 slices of Vienna size multigrain seeded bread

4 slices of American Cheese

½ large Portabella mushroom or 3 baby bellas

1 small to medium size tomato

1 ½ tablespoons of butter, or I can’t Believe it’s Not Butter

Preparation: 8 minutes

With high heat, melt the butter in the pan and spread the butter around so it covers the entire pan.  Begin slicing your tomato and portabella mushroom in medium slices.  Put 2 slices of cheese of each slice of bread covering the entire surface of the bread.  Add the slices of tomato to one slice of the bread and cheese.  Add the portabella mushroom to the other slice of bread and cheese.  Create your sandwich and set it down on one side of the pan.  Push down with the spatula and grill for 2-3 minutes until the bread is brown and slightly black.  Flip the sandwich over and set it on the other side of the pan in the butter that hasn’t been used yet.  Push down with the spatula and grill for 2-3 minutes or until slightly black and serve…

    Nothing beats the classics! However, Matt, try this recipe with a cheese from Spain called Manchego. It’s basically a staple there. You get a great melt texture that you would from an american cheese however, you get more flavors from this queso from Spain.

    I’ve never even heard of that cheese. Sounds like some liberal socialist bullshit to me.

    I think Rick Sanchez invented it.

    I would go with a lager or pilsner. You don’t want anything too heavy to over shadow the flavor.
