Grilled Cheddar Cheese Sandwich and Spicy Beer Mustard



Classic Grilled Cheddar and Spicy Beer Mustard Sandwich

I keep a quality cheddar in my refrigerator for nights like the one I experienced this week.  I arrived home hungry, the house dark and chilly.  First thought, a perfect occasion for a grilled cheese sandwich for what little remains of the evening.  The making process moves along quickly, and the clean-up, a non event.  A chore turns into an occasion when Spicy Beer Mustard is invited to help with the cooking.
Spicy beer Mustard adds a continental flavor and a punch of spice to the humble grilled Cheese. Serve it with a dill pickle, a cluster of grapes, apple slices, a glass of beer and/or a carafe of Rose' and feel becalmed.

                                                 Keeps sniffles away
2 slices English Muffin bread (I like the coarse grain and slightly dry nature of this bread for grilling to a toasty brown)
1 Tb. Spicy Beer Mustard (Spicy Beer Mustard adds a distinct and satisfying flavor to a simple cheese sandwich)
2 slices Cheddar cheese or your favorite cheese (Keep a fine quality cheese in your refrigerator for nights like these)
2 tsp. butter, room temperature (I always have soft butter in my Butter Bell)
I know you know how to make a grilled cheese sandwich. I will write how I do it but feel free to work it out your own way.
Gather the ingredients
Locate a skillet with a heavy bottom among your collection of pans. I used a single sandwich size Caphalon skillet. Or employ your panini grill!
Heat pan on the stove top to a medium low temperature.
Slice the cheese
Slather the Spicy Beer Mustard on one side of each slice of bread
Arrange the cheese and make a sandwich
Lightly butter the top and bottom of the sandwich
Grill the sandwich until each side is toasty brown and the cheese melts
