I came across this contest to create the Greatest Grilled Cheese Sandwich in America. But if you are going to enter, you'd best hurry. The deadline is TODAY!
My greatest grilled cheese sandwich will always be on sourdough bread. With three Kraft cheese slices. Generously slathered with margarine before being popped into the pan. Sometimes with mustard on the inside. Not that icky yellow mustard rather something golden, rich and flavorful. Perhaps with a glob of tuna fish. Tuna fish is awesome between two slabs of grilled sourdough bread held together with melted gooey cheese.
Interestingly enough, the contest is sponsored by Dupont. They make Teflon, one use of which is the wonderous coating on pans that keeps things from sticking. Making a grilled cheese sandwich without a teflon-coated pan is asking for disaster.
While perusing the contest site, I learned the average American consumes 8.4 grilled cheese sandwiches a year. I haven't eaten even one grilled cheese sandwich yet this year. Not even one. Because Wendy and I can't keep bread in the house. When we do buy it, it always turns green before we can finish the whole loaf. Or even half the loaf.
Green bread and cheese. Now there's a potential winning contest entry! Akin to Green Eggs and Ham? And just about as appetizing.
