Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with Balsamic Glaze

Sometimes you need simplicity. These grilled cheeses are an assortment of one cheese sandwiches served with a tangy glaze. No toppings, no frills. Just cheese + bread + balsamic.

This blogs marks the end of Grilled Cheese Month 2014 at Vegetarian & Cooking! I hope you enjoyed the thirty days of grilled cheese sandwiches. Tomorrow's recipe is a delightful soup with dumplings which Dave and I both loved, so that should help to ease you back into blog reality. Don't worry, Grilled Cheese Month 2015 is already in the works.

Recipe from Garnish with Lemon.

Balsamic Glaze
1 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced

4 slices white bread, crusts removed
½ cup (2 ounces) Pepper Jack cheese, grated
½ cup (2 ounces) Cheddar, grated
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Make the grilled cheeses like you typically would -- toasted in a skillet of melted butter. One will be cheddar cheese and one will be pepper jack cheese.

For the glaze, heat the balsamic vinegar and butter until the mixture is reduced by half and thickened. 
Serve together. 

I really enjoyed the simplicity of this combination of ingredients. This was something that was easy to make which was flavorful. The balsamic glaze added a nice tangy bite to the sandwich, the bread was nice and crispy without the crusts.
