Cheese Imagination

Forget the American cheese, that’s for kids. This is an adult grilled cheese sandwich. Get some nice fontina and some asiago. Also get a bit of parmesan. Grate the cheeses and pile them high on one piece of bread. Why use grated cheese? Well, because it melts better. There is a lot more surface area on grated cheese to come into contact with all that hot air inside a waffle maker so it melts faster. Add some parmesan on the inside and add more on the outside. It will brown a bit and create a wonderful crusty goodness.
