One of the first things that made me really like Eric when we started dating was when I found out that he was in an exclusive sandwich club. I wasn’t even that serious about cooking when we met in college, but I’ve always been serious about food, so a guy in a sandwich club held definite appeal. He and his roommate, another sandwich club member (okay…so they were the only members) used to always make 3 sandwiches between them, because one wasn’t enough but two was too much, so they went halfsies.
I remember the first time Eric made me a sandwich. I can’t remember what kind it was, but I do know he brought it over to my apartment pre-assembled on a little plate, cut in a perfect diagonal. I thought it was the cutest thing ever.
As sandwich aficionados, we both agree that sometimes it’s hard to beat a classic grilled cheese sandwich. They’re just so simple and full of fat. You can’t argue with it.
But let me introduce you to this Jalapeño Popper Grilled Cheese Sandwich. It’s a regular grilled cheese except it uses artisan bread and has cream cheese jalapeño smear on it. Oh, and crushed tortilla chips to get that extra crunch. (Don’t scoff, I know you put potato chips on your sandwiches when you were a kid). It is surprisingly not that spicy. Removing the seeds from the jalapeños does the trick. If you let the cream cheese mixture sit for a few hours or overnight, then it will definitely be more spicy. I always make it and eat it right away. Make this sandwich for someone. Deliver it on a little plate, cut diagonally. They will love you.
