Over the July Fourth holiday weekend we posted a pic on Instagram of the grilled cheese sandwiches we'd made for a pool party. It got more likes than almost everything we posted that entire week combined. That made us realize that people take their grilled cheese sandwiches quite seriously.
We got the idea from a recipe suggestion that came to us with a sample bottle of Moore's Buffalo Wing Sauce. Pimento cheese has long been a favorite in this house although it is more a Southern specialty. It's basically grated cheddar cheese mixed with a little mayonnaise and chopped pimento.
We smeared our fresh bread with the sauce, added a generous layer of the pimento cheese and then a sprinkle of chopped green onion.
Whenever we make a grilled cheese sandwich we always use ghee (clarified butter) and spread it evenly on the bread with a pastry brush.
Using the ghee just seems to make for the optimal golden color and slight crunch.
So, yeah, it turned out to be the perfect poolside snack. The slight heat of the Buffalo Sauce added an unexpected zip. And, it's so easy. Happy summering, everyone!
The Moore's Buffalo Sauce was provided to us as a sample without promise of any mention or editorial consideration. We just liked the stuff!
