Years ago, Jack-in-the-Box ran an ad with the lines, “But why a bun? A bun’s neither meat nor cheese.” They were joking. I wasn’t when I stole the idea and used Yanni Jalapeno Grilling Cheese as the bread for this sandwich. The company makes two types of grilling cheese and my cheese-only grilled cheese sandwich idea seemed like a great test flight for their products.
Leftover garlic is a crime. Or, in my case, a myth. It’s my catnip. Whenever I have some lying around after grilling or barbecuing, I’ll make whatever excuse I need to cook it up and eat it. Like any honest addict, I eventually gave up the pretense and started mainlining it. Instead of a spoon and lighter, though, I use a grill and a spatula for mainlining my drug of choice. Grilled garlic is one of the easiest appetizers ever.
Looking for a unique appetizer that goes back to the Victorian era but is rarely served today? Try chicken livers at your next cocktail or dinner party.
