Recipe Wednesday -- Cheese Sandwich to Die For

Today I’m going to share the directions on the cheese sandwich we sampled on our trip to Borough Market in London.  The lady on the grill at the Kappacasein stand talked with me as she grilled up morsels of yum and told me how to make the gooey delights.

It’s about the bread and the cheddar.  Start with sourdough bread cut into sandwich slices.  They use shredded Montgomery cheddar and say the complexities are one of the reasons the sandwiches are so good. 
They also have a container of finely chopped white onion, red onion, scallions, shallots and garlic at the ready.   
Layer the bottom slice of bread with the shredded cheddar, pile on a handful of the chopped mixture, slap on the top slice of sourdough and place on the grill.  Close and grill.  You want the cheese melted and gooey, the bread nice and toasted.  Remove and enjoy!!!  No butter or oil is needed on the bread since the melting cheese supplies the oil base. 

It’s probably a good thing I don’t live in London because I could see this becoming a weekly addiction for me.  And I’m sure my efforts to duplicate will be good, but as the lady who walked me through the directions shared…her attempts at home never turn out as good as the ones at the stand.  But hey, I’m going to give it a try!
For your viewing pleasure, here are a few more shots of our trip.  London, though crowded was amazing, the hotel very nice and the kids delightful (for the most part), but I forgot my herbs so the hotflashes were fun..Not!
Climbing the Lions!

My pleasure, Libby. I even located a local cheese shop that has Montgomery Cheddar! On my list to try once hubby gets over his bout with gout...obviously he didn't eat healthy on the trip...LOL

Didin't think they'd make it through customs, Shonna. I'm sure some hungry agent would have found the need to remove them from my luggage!...*g*
