Bougie Grilled Cheese

As a kid, I loved parmesan cheese from the green can, ate vienna sausages straight from the container, and considered Kraft American slices to be the best cheese a girl could eat. I’m not sure what changed, but my tastes became decidedly bougier as I’ve gotten older.

One of my favorite bars in Los Angeles serves a grilled cheese with goat and parmesan and I decided to try recreating it at home. The goat cheese is soft and gooey on the inside, while the parmesan offers a nutty crunch on the outside. It’s a delightful combo!

Grilled Goat and Parmesan Cheese Sandwich

Bougie Grilled Cheese Ingredients:

  • Your favorite bread (sourdough is delicious!)
  • About a ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (not that stuff in a green can!)
  • Goat Cheese (The pictured Trader Joe’s brand goat cheese with honey is BEYOND!) – I like to take the goat cheese out about 15 minutes before making this so it spreads easily.
  • Butter

Grilled Goat and Parmesan Cheese Sandwich

Bougie Grilled Cheese Directions:

  1. Put a frying pan on medium high.
  2. Melt a little butter in the frying pan (so the parmesan cheese will turn golden brown)
  3. Spread the goat cheese on one slice of bread and put the other slice on top.
  4. Butter one slice of your sandwich.
  5. Press half the parmesan cheese into the butter.
  6. Flip it over.
  7. Butter the other side and press the rest of the parmesan cheese into the butter.
  8. Carefully put the sandwich into your frying pan.
  9. Flip when the parmesan cheese is golden brown.

I like to serve my grilled cheese with sliced tomatoes, sprinkled with fresh ground pepper and a little sea salt. Enjoy!
