Not Yo' Momma's Grilled Cheese

Would you like a grilled cheese?

Who is going to say no to that? Honestly. (The answer is "no one".)

For this super fab grilled cheese, I started with two slices of the homemade Honey Wheat Bread and several slices of provolone cheese.

I buttered it, grilled it, and heated up some tasty V8 Sweet Red Pepper Soup to go with. Easy, tasty, and such a satisfying rainy day lunch.

Oh, but wait, what is this business?

Ladies and gentlemen... the interlopers in this sandwich are jalapeno slices. The addition of jalapeno brings a bite to this otherwise understated grilled cheese. The honey wheat bread is sweet, the provolone is waxy (or at least I think so), and the jalapenos tie them together with a bit of sass.

Dipped in the red pepper soup, this sandwich begs to be bitten.

And I certainly did not keep it waiting long.

I don't do jalepenos, but you know, grown up grilled cheeses are seriously good. And red pepper soup is SO good. I like the Pacific brand organic red pepper. So delicious.

You know, it's been years since I've had a soup and sandwich of any sort. I think I ought to return to that combo.

Sean would refuse this, but only because he is subhuman and hates cheese.

Grace said...

YUM!!! If only you were in town to make us some! Ok ok ok - I'll try on my own. It really does look delicious!

Now you got me wanting a grilled cheese sandwich. I was planning on making some soup later so now I can have a sandwich with it. Maybe I'll add something to my grilled cheese too. I don't have jalapeno's but I'm sure I'll find something.

Yummy! I want one.

Well, I would say no to that. I only like cheese in specific circumstances and grilled is not one of them.
