Khalcheesi – Game of Thrones Grilled Cheese with Iberico and Sausage Stuffed Baby Pepper

Warning: if you don’t watch Game of Thrones, this post probably won’t be that interesting to you.  Just ignore my story, check out the ingredients, follow the pictures, and start watching Game of Thrones.
Let’s get things straight, I’m making a Khaleesi grilled cheese – stuffed with the ingredients that will one day mount the world.  I am totally obsessed with her.  For some reason the part where she ate that horse heart totally stuck with me.  I knew it would be kind of a macabre idea, but after the season finale, it was time – my moon and stars told me so – I miss you already Khal Drogo.

 With a little bit of influence from Dothraki’s and Targaryen’s, I present to you my lord, the ingredients.

Ingredients:

– 1/2 cup Iberico cheese
– 2 thinly sliced pieces of ciabatta
– 2 pats of salted butter
– 1 tsp of garlic salt
– 1 sausage stuffed baby pepper (PLEASE DO
   NOT USE REAL HORSE HEART)
   (stuffed with one ground sausage patty, 1 tbs
   of iberico cheese, a bit of fresh parsley, drizzled 
   with olive oil and baked for 40 minutes at 350)

So to begin, let’s talk about this salty cheese.  Iberico is one of Spain’s most popular cheeses and is made from pasteurized goats, cows and sheeps milk.  For the sake of this post, I’m going to pretend it’s made from horse, deer, and lambs milk to make it more Targaryan-ish.  The dragon feeds on what it wishes!

Alright, here’s where it gets all Dothraki up in this house (and across the Narrow Sea). This next step involves making a heart to make Khaleesi’s baby strong and fearless stuffed baby bell pepper.  To do this, begin by preheating your oven to 350°. Core one small red pepper and hollow it out – making sure to remove all the seeds (The stallion that mounts the world HATES seeds…it is known). Crumble one small cooked sausage patty and combine it with one tablespoon of iberico and a few leaves of chopped parsley.  Place mixture in pepper, drizzle with olive oil and crack some salt and pepper over it.  Place in a small baking dish, cover, and bake for 30-40 minutes.

At this point, it will look exactly like a heart.  It’s sort of weird (i know), but it tastes delicious and it will make baby stallion you strong. Once you have this pepper cooked, let it cool off for a minute and then place it directly on top.

Now cover it with more of that salty iberico cheese.  It is, they say, tradition to bring the Dosh Khaleen salt.

And place the last piece of bread on top.  

Heat up your pan to one thousand dragon flames (or medium high heat).  Melt one pat of butter and sprinkle some garlic salt onto it.  Gently place your sandwich in the pan and smear it around so it soaks up all the garlic-y goodness.  

 Let the sandwich cook until the cheese starts to melt just like that molten gold that killed Viserys (No tears here, he was a horrible brother).  Make sure to let the crust get golden brown too.  It should take about 3-4 minutes.

 Then take it out of the skillet and let it sit for a hot minute.  This will enhance the flavors and keep your sandwich in tact so it stays together when you eat it.

Now….when you eat this, you’ll need to gather about two dozen friends, give them torches of some sort and have them form a large circle.  You will then need to devour the sandwich at an easy pace while your friends watch in silence (don’t even think about saving half for later.  That is not the Dothraki way).  
 This will be…a bit awkward, but once you’ve finished, you will need to name your food baby (something exotic) and declare that he/she will one day rule the world.  Your friends will then chant your baby’s name in a very primitive and cool way.  After that everyone can pretty much do their own thing.

  4. sorta looks like the best sandwich ever. so glad I came across your blog. I'm following, I hope you will as well. I started my blog a little over 3 months ago after graduating from college in the south and moving across the country to LA. The site's all about celebrity fashion from the point of view of an LA stylist. I'd love if if you'd stop by to see multiple post a day on all the latest celebrity fashion news. Any support would be awesome. Thanks love. xoxo

  5. I started reading two things today: your blog, and A Game of Thrones! When I came across this one, I knew it was fate: my housemate left, among other leftovers, a stuffed pepper for me to eat while she's camping for the week. I just made the sandwich, and am about to continue with A Game of Thrones. Perfect!

  6. Sausage on a grilled cheese? HEAVEN!!! Do you come up with these ideas yourself?

    I consider myself a conoseuir of Patty Melts – surely a patty melt counts as a GC right?

    Yummmmm….

Please share your thoughts!
