Grilled Cheese Tuesday - The Queso Queen's Deli Grilled Cheese

The Queso Queen has done it again! Nicole recently submitted her latest grilled cheese creation and the adorable story about how it came to be:

Once upon a time, before I was a Dairymaid, before I was even a Houstonian, I threw a grilled cheese party. I traveled three hours to the Dairymaids warehouse, back when it was only open on Fridays and Saturdays, to gather the cheeses.

I explained to former Dairymaid Charlotte (now co-owner of Boomtown Coffee) my reason for visiting and asked her to recommend a variety of cheeses suitable for ten varieties of grilled cheese.

"Have you thought about caraway, she asked?"

I shook my head.

"Caraway, like rye bread. You should do a caraway cheese with deli mustard and make that one of your grilled cheeses."

And so I did. The uniqueness of the grilled cheese married with the classic flavors of a deli sandwich = fantastic.

I decided to recreate the concept of that sandwich for this project - with a little more oomph.


1 oz Caraway to Heaven, shredded
2 slices rye bread
a few slices of pastrami
Famous Kream Mustard
1 tablespoon Straight from the Vine raw sauerkraut kimchi
1 tablespoon mayonnaise/Russian dressing
Lucky Layla Butter, room temp

Directions:
Mix dressing with kimchi, set aside. Butter one side of each slice of rye bread. On the non buttered side of the bread: spread mustard, layer pastrami and half the cheese. On the other slice, spread mustard, kimchi mix and the remaining cheese. Assemble sandwich and place butter side down in a frying pan over medium/low heat. Grill until crisp, flip and repeat.

Why would you ruin it with mayo?
