My ultimate grilled cheese is a Grilled Cheese with Tomato and Bacon on brioche bread, using a blend of two cheeses. Easy and delicious comfort food!
Today is National Grilled Cheese Day! This is a holiday I did not know existed until I started food blogging. How did I live my life before without celebrating these food holidays? I’m not sure, but I’m making up for lost time now by bringing you my version of the Ultimate Grilled Cheese….with tomato and bacon on brioche bread, made with two different types of Kerrygold cheeses!
My favorite type of grilled cheese has always been with tomato and bacon. There is something about that combo that is just so amazing. And the best bread for this sandwich is a nice buttery brioche. It really takes it to the next level!
Kerrygold was kind enough to send me a variety of their cheeses and butter to try. I used Skellig cheese, a sweet cheddar, and Blarney Stone, similar to a gouda, to make my ultimate grilled cheese. I love the combo of these cheeses, and they both melt very nicely.
My tip for adding tomatoes to a grilled cheese is to warm them before adding them to the sandwich. This helps the cheese melt faster! I just throw the tomatoes on the griddle for a few seconds before putting them on sandwich!
Also, I can’t have a grilled cheese without cutting it in half diagonally. My family has always cut their sandwiches that way. To me, it just doesn’t taste as good if the sandwich is in rectangles rather than triangles! I realize I sound like 5 year old right now
