DARK CHOCOLATE, PARMESAN, & RICOTTA GRILLED CHEESE SANDWICH: National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day

I'm a big fan of Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, so I really wanted to post a great recipe today for Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. As always use the very best ingredients for the best taste! Please don't use Parmesan from a can--either grate your own or buy it at a specialty shop where it's just been grated. Recently I've been favoring a Wisconsin Parmesan--not too salty and fabulous flavor. And, of course a good Parmesan/Reggiano would be great in this Grilled Cheese Sandwich! This is a chocolate blog, so this is a recipe for a Dark Chocolate Grilled Parmesan Cheese Sandwich

Dark Chocolate, Parmesan, and Ricotta Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Ingredients
4 slices brioche or sweet sourdough
Butter, for bread
2 Tbsp ricotta cheese
1 1/2 ounces dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions
Lightly spread one side of each bread slice with butter. Evenly divide ricotta between two bread slices and then evenly sprinkle the Chocolate and Parmesan over the ricotta. Top with remaining bread slices.
Heat skillet over medium-low heat. Place sandwiches in warm skillet and cook on one side until golden brown and cheese begins to melt, 2 to 4 minutes.
Flip sandwich over and cook until golden brown and cheese is completely melted, 2 to 4 additional minutes.
Let cool 2 minutes before cutting in half.
