Portuguese Grilled Cheese Sandwich
I say Portuguese because a friend shared this recipe (which was translated via Google). I do not have the original URL for this.
Here’s the translated version:
The wonderful afternoon snack! !
2 tbsp grated cheese
Salt to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
Beat with a fork and take the micro for 3 minutes.
Open the bread in half and fill with ham and mozzarella and take the sandwich until golden brown and enjoy!
Untranslated for those who read Portuguese:
Lanchinho da tarde maravilhoso! !!
2 cs queijo ralado
Sal a gosto
1cc de fermento
1 cs azeite
Bater com um garfo e levar ao micro por 3 minutos.
Abrir o pão ao meio e rechear com presunto e mussarela e levar para a sanduicheira até dourar e bom apetite!
Anyway, I figured the 1 cc of yeast was 1 teaspoon, since it translated “cs” into tablespoons.
So, I made this. I did 2. One to do like a grilled cheese on my stove and a second to cook in a sandwich maker. I did everything per the instructions, except added a little garlic powder to one batch.
I microwaved this in one of these Ziploc containers, since it more closely resembles the size and shape of a piece of white bread:
This is what it looked like after coming out of the microwave (just about thought it was going to spill over the top but it deflated quickly).
I just put cheese in the middle, after slice in half lengthwise. Then commenced cooking. Here is the one on the stove top griddle:
The consensus between my husband and myself? It’s a greasy dense omelet. I’m not sure what (if anything) the yeast did in the recipe. If I had to choose a cooking method, I prefer the stove top griddle. I initially was going to say I wouldn’t make these again but now that they have cooled off a bit, the griddle one, if doctored up with vanilla and cinnamon, could probably fool my brain into thinking it was french toast. I might have to try that! Anyway, if you try this, tweak it, and love it, let me know how you did it! 🙂
