TV Dinners: The Devil Wears Prada - Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Like many a die hard fashionista, The Devil Wears Prada was my favorite movie of 2006. I know it may be a bit loco, but I actually saw it in the theaters twice and received the DVD as a gift from the bro for New Years. My clothes-horse self loved Anne Hathaway's countless (Chanel) outfit changes, while my foodie self loved how her boy toy Adrian Grenier was a wannabe chef. Adrian Grenier excels at making hard-working Anne late night grilled cheese sandwiches. Grilled cheese is number one on my top ten best sandwiches in the world list and I'll have to confess, since seeing the movie I've had a fantasy (or three) about Adrian making me a late night grilled cheese sandwich. In the movie he uses $8 a slice Jarlsberg making it one haute sandwich. For the super simplistic yet super good recipe,

Grilled (Jarlsberg) Cheese Sandwich
From Sunset magazine

About 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 slices firm white bread
4 to 6 ounces Jarlsberg cheese, thinly sliced

  1. Spread 1 side of bread slices with butter.
  2. Mound cheese on unbuttered side of 2 slices. Set bread, buttered side up, on cheese.
  3. Place sandwiches in frying pan and cook, covered, on medium-low heat until cheese is soft and bread is browned, about 12 minutes total; turn sandwiches once.
  4. Remove from pan, cut in half diagonally, and serve hot.

Serves 2.

I had a grilled cheese sandwich last night for dinner! Used burrata, 18 year balsamic, and cotechinno on ciabatta with olive oil. I guess it was a gourmet grilled cheese!

That looks SO good. I only eat grilled cheese if it's GOOD grilled cheese, not so gross greasy halfarsed wannabe. Lightly buttered and slightly burnt on some edges, DROOL* OMG! I hate you for posting this up so near my lunch break... no one around me makes grilled cheese for lunch.. unless I get something from the kiddie menu... HMMMMMMMMM :9
