Feed The Resistance: Grilled Cheese-Off 2024!

In honor of the fact that today is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day, Dee and I held another “Grilled Cheese-off.”  Each of us made a grilled cheese sandwich, hers with blackberries and a little honey, and mine with home-made pimento cheese and whiskey-bacon jam!  Both sandwiches turned out FANTASTIC – and we paired them both with the “Wisconsinitis” Cream Ale from 3 Sheeps Brewing Company.  The sweetness of Dee’s sandwich worked great with the creaminess of the beer…and the spiciness of the pimento cheese in my sandwich was mellowed a bit by the beer.  Dee always teaches us to pair with either contrasting or similar flavors…this worked with both sandwiches, for opposite reasons – similar flavors with Dee’s sandwich, and contrasting flavors with my sandwich.
