Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? Guess what? April 12th is National Grilled Cheese Day!
In honor of this month of the beloved sandwich, I have not 1 but 3 recipes to share with you! These are not just normal grilled cheese. These sandwiches all have a French cheese involved: Comte, Emmental, and Mimmolette.
Why French cheeses? French cheeses are some of the most beloved by chefs worldwide. So why not take your sandwich up a notch with French cheese and breads.
What is Mimmolette? Mimmolette hails from the Normandy region of France. Its delicious semi-firm cheese has a sharp and nutty flavor.
When I did research for this cheese I found out that this particular French cheese is considered one the best cheeses to use on the classic grilled cheese sandwich. It also is amazing in #macaroniandcheese.
Steak and Mimmolette Grilled Cheese
I decided to go for an American classic taste, but with French appeal. The answer to me was simple. I used a Philly cheesesteak as my inspiration for this grilled cheese.
One bite of this buttery, cheese creation, I knew I had a hit. Mimolette was born to be in grilled cheese. Then with the added steak to that mix, it is sandwich heaven.
I want to thank The Baddish Group and Cheeses of France, along with #Cuisinart for giving me this opportunity to create these recipes for you! I was given the cheeses and a sandwich maker in exchange for creating these yummy recipes.
