Smoked Salmon Gruyere Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Photobucket
April is "Grilled Cheese Sandwich Month" and our Crazy Cooking Challenge for the May party suitingly is "Grilled Cheese Sandwiches".  I had to think about what I would like to try for a new grilled cheese sandwich, and I happened to have a hankering for smoked salmon, so a little googling and I found a recipe for a Smoked Salmon Gruyere Grilled Cheese Sandwich, which inspired me to come up with my own creation. I made mine without lemon, and it was pretty tasty! 

Here is what I used / did:

Sourdough bread
Smoked Salmon
Gruyere Cheese (we used a smoked gruyere)
Butter (Unsalted)

A grown-up grilled cheese sandwich, so good!Butter the outside of the sourdough bread.  Place butter side down, and start to fill the sandwich with toppings.  I pulled apart the smoked salmon into small chunks and place the chunks along the bread.  Slice the cheese and place in/on/around the smoked salmon, ensuring that the cheese will melt and tocuh each side of the sandwich to help hold it together.  Place the second piece of bread on top (again, butter side out) and place on warmed grill.  Cook until the cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown.  Slice and serve!


VERDICT:
What a nice treat this was!  My husband and I both felt it was a great "grown up" grilled cheese sandwich.  Very tasty indeed - an indulgence for sure!

Would love for you to "Like" Addicted to Recipes on Facebook...thanks!
