Grilled Cheese Nutella Sandwich!

"Lunch Break" by Arthur Saron Sarnoff
This month we celebrate the Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Grilled Cheese is just about my favorite sandwich, and I'm thrilled that there are now so many places that serve a variation. And, at home, well you know I've added chocolate, chocolate and strawberries, and other wonderful foods that make this crispy/gooey treat so awesome. How can you go wrong with bread, cheese, and butter?

So today with a nod to The Kitchn, here's a great recipe for a Grilled Cheese Nutella Sandwich. The Kitchn's Grilled Cheese is made in the oven, but I like the extra flavor that comes with grilling. And, it's Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month, after all. This recipe uses cream cheese, but to make it more savory, you can always use brie. I'm a big fan of melted brie. Want an even savorier (is that a word?) flavor? Use ripe soft goat cheese. Want to make it sweeter? Butter the outside of the bread and when grilling sprinkle with brown sugar (don't let it burn--just carmelize).


4 slices Italian sweet sourdough bread
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
4 Tbsp Nutella
Sea Salt
Sweet butter

Butter one side of each piece of bread.
Spread cream cheese on inside of 2 slices of sourdough bread.
Spread Nutella on remaining inside of 2 slices.
Sprinkle sea salt on the Nutella.
Put sandwiches together.
Heat skillet with more sweet butter (don't burn)
Place sandwiches on hot skillet and grill.
Turn after appropriate golden-ness.
Grill second side until done!
