Grilled Cheese & Truffle Sandwich
-Changgok, Sujeong, Seongnam, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea-
1. In addition to muenster (my go-to sandwich cheese), I added a slice of processed American cheese. In some video I can’t remember which, Chef Kenji recommends processed American cheese as a supplement to boost cheese gooeyness. Worked but perhaps too well, making the cheese gooey beyond control. The technique would be better applied to something like mac & cheese, where saucy consistency is a virtue.
2. In lieu of sun-dried tomato (see generally 2.345 Grilled Cheese & Sun-Dried Tomato Sandwich), I tried truffle paste. Worked like a charm. A new instant classic.
