Inside-out grilled cheese

The inside-out grilled cheese sandwich has cheese cooked into the outside of the bread.  Fortunately people don’t adhere too closely to the title because there is still plenty of cheese on the inside.

Cheese cooked into the outer crust

I first heard about these from the infamous Alton Brown.  He uses two giant frying pans and cooks his grilled cheese in between the two hot, heavy, cast iron pans.  While this doesn’t seem worth the work I must point out his use of brown mustard.  The mustard can be really amazing.

Fast forward a few years to the 9th Annual Lebowski Fest.  Greg and I are up late talking about food (cause what else would we talk about besides movies?) and this method of grilled cheese comes up.  I’m inspired and decided to make one later that year.

Tonight I made a simple cheddar and mozzarella grilled cheese with a mozzarella crust.  Nothing fancy, but sometimes less is more.  Here are some photos.  I mostly post these because of how much people talk about them.  Sorry if I make you drool.
