The Gourmet Grilled Cheese Cookbook Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 1/16 (Rafflecopter) #ChristmasGiftGuide



 My family and I love cheese! We especially love sandwiches with all types of cheese in them! We made some ham for Christmas Day dinner, and we have been using it in as many things that we can think of. Last night, we made mini ham and cheddar cheese sandwiches on rolls! The kids ate them up! My husband thought it was such a great idea, that he made some for himself later last night when he was hungry. We had a late lunch, so we all ate dinner at different times last night, which happens once in a while.

Grilled Cheese sandwiches are great comfort food for some of us. They are especially good when it's cold outside. It's winter right now here in Tennessee, and boy is it cold! Any food that is nice, warm, and easy to fix is what's on the menu for dinner in our home.

Below is some information about the book:
They say anything is better once you put cheese on it. Kit Graham of The Kittchen, a popular blog out of Chicago, knows this all too well. She is finally sharing her obsession with cheese as she launches her new cookbook, The Gourmet Grilled Cheese Cookbook.

Grilled cheese is the ultimate comfort food. It can be simply made from bread, cheese, and butter, or it can become a gourmet meal with the addition of more sophisticated ingredients. The goal of The Gourmet Grilled Cheese cookbook was to create recipes that transform the humble grilled cheese into something ‘more’.

This full color cookbook features 20 original recipes for gourmet grilled cheese. The recipes are divided into four sections: Vegetarian, Meat, Seafood, and Add Ins. The Add Ins section is where cheese lovers will find stand-alone recipes for items that are used in some of the grilled cheese recipes. The Add In recipes are referenced in the grilled cheese recipes, but can be enjoyed on their own and in other dishes too:
  • Artichoke Dip (This creamy cheesy dip with chunks of artichoke)
  • Honey Roasted Walnuts (Sweet honey roasted walnuts with just a hint of cayenne pepper)
  • Marsala Poached Pears (Pears poached in rich Marsala wine and butter)
  • Poached Pear, Honey Roasted Walnut, and Homemade Ricotta Grilled Cheese
  • Roast Beef, Mushroom, Brie, and Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese
  • Calvin’s Crab Rangoon Grilled Cheese 
It is so much more than bread and cheese!
