Grilled Cheese with a twist

July 26, 2010

So, this recipe was supposed to be an inventive way to cook grilled cheese, I just didn’t know how inventive it was going to be. People raved about the grilled cheese at the party, and asked for the recipe. I was really shocked at the response, as it was the easiest item on the menu. The original recipe uses Kerrygold aged cheddar and has scallion and chive flavored butter. When AAM and I rehashed the menu last night, we realized that he thought the butter went inside the sandwich and he put pam spray on the outside and laid them on the panini press. No wonder it was a huge hit!! This minor miscommunication created the most addictive grilled cheese ever!

The recipe below is designed for a crowd, and meant to be cut into bite-size pieces.

AAM’s Grilled Cheese Discovery

  • 1 stick of butter softened (do not microwave, but just let it sit out)
  • 1/3 cup of chopped scallions
  • 1/3 cup of chopped chives
  • 2 packages of Kerrygold Aged Cheddar
  • 1 loaf of wheat bread.


  1. Thoroughly mix the butter, chives and scallions together.
  2. Slice the cheddar cheese
  3. Butter the inside of the bread and layer cheese on top.
  4. Either cook them on a panini press (which means you can evenly cook two at a time) or in a pan on the stove.
  5. Make the entire batch for a crowd, or save the butter for future enjoyment.
  6. We sliced them into fours to make little mini-appetizers.

    Buttering the inside of the bread might be a guy thing. Robb thought that's how grilled cheeses were made, too.
