The idea for the Grilled Cheese Curd Sandwich came to me a couple days after I made the Poutine Burger. I still had some white Cheddar cheese curds left and was all set to make myself a regular grilled cheese when I decided to add the remaining cheese curds to the sandwich as well.
I started my grilled cheese off the same way you’d begin with any grilled cheese, by buttering two pieces of bread. Instead of just putting one or two pieces of cheese in between the two slices of bread though I added a layer of orange sharp Cheddar deli cheese and topped that with a layer of white Cheddar cheese curds before adding even more sharp Cheddar cheese to the top of the sandwich. As the cheese started to melt, the orange Cheddar cheese started filling in all the gaps between the cheese curds creating the perfect blend of cheese.
The addition of cheese curds to what would otherwise be a normal grilled cheese sandwich definitely added a nice contrast of not only tastes, but textures as well since the cheese curds didn’t melt quite as much as the deli cheese did. In a way the sandwich kind of reminded me of the Denny’s Fried Cheese Melt, only a whole lot tastier.
