Rise of the Silver Slugger
The Silver Slugger, the customer selected feature replacing The A.F.T., is just that, a slugger. Jason, the man who got to pick this one, wasn’t messing around when it came to making a grilled cheese. He knew what he wanted and it had to have a lot of cheese. It packs a cheesy punch with Fontina, Cheddar and Swiss cheeses. Matched with the Panini Bianca there is enough cheese to fill all the air pockets and stand up to the dense bread. To finish off the flavour explosion are prosciutto and tomato. Yes there is a lot going on with this one, but the three cheeses blend well and it all comes together nicely.
It will be interesting to see how this one does compared to The Jack Hammer, a similar Ham/veggie style grilled cheese. I know it’s not fair to compare customer’s grilled cheeses like that. I can’t help it though, I’m the competitive type, and I view this as grilled cheese battle royale, with only the best surviving. Maybe we should call it The Hunger Games :P
The Jack Hammer
Yeah, I know, its a boring title, but I couldn’t think of any jokes worthy, so I figured I might as well not try for fear of embarrassing myself. Well the Jack Hammer is the replacement Feature Grilled Cheese to the HotStepper and it follows it up quite well. While it’s not as in your face as the HotStepper was, the combination of flavours is awesome. It has a really great subtleness to it that you wouldn’t expect from the name. And if you notice it is once again on Panini Bianca. I really love this bread and am basically putting all of our Features on it in hopes that the bread will eventually make it onto the main menu. I’m glad that our Feature-selecting customers have been happy to indulge me in this way. Thanks go to Taylor for choosing a great grilled cheese.
The Jack Hammer, a not so subtle creation on Panini Bianca with Monterey Jack, Serrano Ham and Balsamic Reduction Caramelized Red Onions. This is a good one.
