After years of laboratory research, and countless disappointments, I think I’ve finally discovered the cure for Grilled Cheese Syndrome (GCS). I have my friends to thank, because without both of their addictions to Cheez-It crackers, I would have never stumbled upon this fascinating discovery.
*This just in: How did I not know that April is National Grilled Cheese month? Well then, this is even MORE genius than I thought previously…
Our friend Josh comes over on the weekends, and often, I’ll make us all dinner. Lately, it’s been spaghetti, but this time, he requested grilled cheese. Noticing our friend Dave had a box of Cheez-Its, Josh decided to buy his own box at the grocery store. As I start preparing to make us all sandwiches, I look over and something clicks.
“What if we coat the outside of the bread with crushed Cheez-It crackers?” The BF and Josh stopped their conversation, and stared at me. I think I blew their minds.
That night I filled our cheesy sandwiches with crispy strips of bacon. Today, I felt like some nice blueberry jam.
I’m going to add this little section here about the jam: apparently this isn’t common? If you’ve never had jam inside of your grilled cheese sandwich, you’re in for an amazing discovery. So yes, this is a grilled cheese sandwich, WITH jam. As the instructions say: spread the jam on one piece of bread, and top with cheese. There’s also a picture down there showing that as well. So try it! Cmooonnn.
There really is no “recipe” for this but… if you feel the need to have one:
I haven’t pinpointed the chemical compound that seems to cure GCS, but whatever it is, it’s helped to cure GCS that affects specifically grilled cheese. I could eat ten of these sandwiches. I still need to find cures for other forms of GCS (like soup, or tacos).
And if you’ve been reading my tweets lately, you’ll see that for the past three days, the BF and I have attempted a raw-vegan diet. We’ve done this before, lasting 10 days, but this time, we decided to try just three. Well, to put it briefly…
