Too bad it all ended when Max Criminal Minded (def: solved the mystery) the situation by remembering that he ate a bag of m&m's before bedtime. So as a sort of cheers to this self-inflicted prank, a blue cheese grilled cheese was created.
For Max's blue tongue grilled cheese inspiration, this is what I used...
- 1 tbs of crumbled Asher Blue Cheese
(Sweetgrass Dairy, GET SOME! )
- ½ tbs of Tupelo Honey
- 2 pats of salted butter
- 1 slice of Morbier Cheese
(Sweetgrass Dairy, I love my cheese
- 1 English Muffin
- 2 or 3 slices of pear
To begin, let's talk about this Morbier cheese. This cheese smells totally awful but tastes totally delicious. It has a really creamy texture when it melts and sort of tastes like a blue brie (almost). I also liked the name because I think Morbier kind of sounded like morbid which fits in perfectly with the "scared" theme that I'm going with today.
But anyways, to begin cut your English Muffin in half and flip it over so the bottom is the side with all the delicious nooks and crannies.
Now simply pile on a few pieces of pear. The semi-grainy texture of the pear is really great when it's held up against the melted cheese and crunchtastic texture of the grilled English Muffin.
After that, gently sprinkle on some of the Blue Cheese. If it falls off the sandwich, don't worry - the next step will help keep the blue cheese on.
At this point, drizzle on some Tupelo Honey. If you read my blog you know I swear by this stuff and consider every other honey to be sub-par to this delicious southern treat. Also, this would be a good time to try and stick some of the blue cheese back on if you were having trouble in the previous step.
Now you're almost done! Just put on the top piece of English Muffin (remember inside on the outside!) and smear a pat of butter all up in those delicious little nooks and crannies. Then once your sammie is built, go ahead and melt the other pat of butter in your skillet by turning the heat to medium. Then when it's melted, gently place sammie in and try to sop up all the butter.
Depending on how hot your range gets, it should take about 3-4 minutes to develop a nice crispy crust on the english muffin. Once it's ready on one side, gently flip the grilled cheese and brown the other side as well.
Remember, scaring people can be a lot of fun and so can eating this delicious sandwich. So please, try both of them (but don't hurt anyone, please) and let me know how it goes. Have a spooktastic week!
