Artichoke Hearts and Smoked Gouda Grilled Cheese
Add this to your must-try list.
Ok so maybe I put a little bit too much cheese in this grilled cheese sandwich because it’s spilling over the sides.
Or, can there ever be too much cheese in a grilled cheese sandwich? Maybe not.
This sandwich is meaty without having meat in it because it’s packed full of marinated artichokes.
I’ll be honest, this tasty morsel of a sandwich does have it’s fair share of cheese in it too.
Actually, it has 3 kinds of cheese in it.
I mean, what’s a grilled cheese sandwich without a lot of cheese in it anyway right?
My fave part about this grilled cheese, besides the taste of butter, the wonderful crunchiness of the sourdough bread, the hint of garlic, and all of the melted cheese, is how the smoky taste of the Gouda cheese meets up with the flavor of the marinated artichokes.
I think I covered it all in that last sentence.
Big bites are definitely required when eating this sandwich.
Let’s check out the ingredients.
Slices of sourdough bread (or your favorite bread), smoked Gouda cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, marinated artichoke hearts, butter and granulated garlic
A printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.
Here’s how to make it.
First, cut the bigger pieces of artichoke hearts in half…
…then shred the cheese.
TIP – A cheese shredder that has smaller holes works good so the cheese melts faster.
Heat a medium size skillet on low heat and add half of the butter.
When the butter melts, add the bread.
Let the bread toast until the bottom side is a golden color.
Then remove it from the pan on to a plate for just a moment.
Add the other half of the butter and the granulated garlic.
…and put the bread back in the pan with the untoasted side face down.
Top each slice of bread with each type of cheese…
…and on one slice of bread (per sandwich) top with the artichoke hearts.
Carefully turn over the non-artichoke slice of bread on top of the artichokes to make a sandwich.
Let the sandwich continue to toast on low heat until the cheese melts.
Be careful to watch that the bottom sides of the bread don’t get too brown.
Turn the heat down if needed.
Serve right away and…
…enjoy each and every bite.
