Grape and Taleggio Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Author: Adapted from Chow.com
Ingredients
  • 1/3 Cup halved red grapes
  • 1 Tablespoon grappa
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 (1/2-inch-thick, 4-by-5-inch-long) slices honey whole wheat bread
  • 2 ounces thinly sliced Taleggio cheese
Instructions
  1. 1. Combine grapes and grappa in a bowl and let macerate for 15 to 20 minutes. Drain off excess grappa.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over medium-low heat. Meanwhile, spread butter on 1 side of each slice of bread.
  3. Once the pan is warm, add 1 slice of bread buttered side down, and top with 1/2 of the cheese, all the grapes, and finally the remaining cheese. Close with the second bread slice, buttered side up.
  4. Cook until bread is toasted and cheese is melted, about 3 minutes per side.
Notes
Grappa is a distilled grape liqueur from Italy; it can be found in high-end liquor stores and online. We liked the floral notes of Inga Grappa di Moscato, which doubles as a nice after-dinner drink.

Taleggio is a washed-rind, semisoft cheese from Italy’s Lombardy region.
