grown up grilled cheese

22 Feb

Last night after watching top chef all day (thank you, President’s Day!), we wanted something simple and warm and comforting.. creamy tomato soup and grilled cheese! So we went to Sunflower Market and got a nice fresh italian loaf, some Swiss mixed with Colby cheese, and lots of tomatoes and headed home. I was just about done with the soup when I realized we had used the rest of the butter the night before for our artichoke dipping sauce! My aunt had mentioned a while ago that she had heard of and tried using mayo instead of butter (ew!) on grilled cheese and it was pretty good. I also thought using a few quick sprays of Pam would do the trick while cutting back the fat and calories. So we did an experiment. We did one with mayo and one with Pam. They both came out great but the grilled cheese using mayo was a little better: the bread was a little crisper and had more flavor.
