Grilled Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Sandwich
-Oksu, Seongdong, Seoul, Republic of Korea-
A spur-of-the-moment creation, the idea to add sun-dried tomatoes came – suddenly and inexplicably -after the bread and cheese were already in the pan. The result was remarkably like pizza, good pizza with an intense tomato flavor. I’ve never heard of this combination, even though it seems obvious. The sun-dried tomatoes were from a jar, marinated in olive oil. I spread the tiniest bit of mayo on the inner surface of the bread and pan-grilled the outsides in butter.
The makings of a new signature dish, I’ll name it once I’ve experimented with different types of cheese and determined which works best. I may also experiment with additional “toppings,” such as olives or arugula.
