The Julien, a Class Act
Today we are introducing our new Feature grilled cheese. It replaces the relatively long running Silver Slugger that had all the cheese on it, with a more refined flavour. This one takes the class level up a notch here at The Construction Site Y&E. Julien in all of his wisdom made only one request when picking his featured grilled cheese. He told us to just make one with short ribs. That’s right, we’re bringing a little bistro flavour to your next grilled cheese. This new feature is relatively simple, but has a great traditional short rib flavour. First we took short ribs and pulled them to get a nice shredded beef. We then sautéed mushrooms and shallots in a homemade port wine reduction. We mixed the two together and put it all on 100% Red Fife wholewheat sourdough with Fontina cheese. Yup, we here at TCS now how to class things up a notch. Enjoy.
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
