Grilled cheese sandwich with duck and ramson

A little while ago I was invited to a summer party where we enjoyed food and drinks. Invitation said bring a friend, your special someone or a colleague. I read friends, so I brought the three youngest children. Oops, maybe a few to many.

This years menu was a little simpler than last years bbq, but there was nothing simple about it. We had grilled cheese sandwiches with duck comfit, ramson mayo and pickled red onion and pizza made by the Norwegian and European pizza champion. My children are used to eating good food around the world, but the grilled cheese and pizzas made an impression on them. After a few hours one of them told me that we had to leave or he would keep eating. He was right, I too was quite full, but kept wanting more.

Grilled cheese sandwiches are really easy to make, there are no hocus pocus to it.. To  make this sandwich you need breadsous vide duck, pickled ramson buds, mayo and some nice cheese or if you want the original  version you need bread, duck comfit, pickled red onions, ramson mayo and cheese.

Assemble the sandwich and grill  until it is golden and the cheese has melted. then enjoy.

In Norway they have a saying “A loved child has many names”, I guess it goes for this dish also, Grilled cheese sandwiches are loved by many and eaten around the world. Who is to say what is the right or the wrong way to make this sandwich. For the traditional Crock Monsieur you need bread, preferably brioche, cooked ham and cheese, some also use bechamel sauce.

Brioch, Poilâne

My version today is quite easy, I used brioche that I brought with me from MiniMe and my trip to Paris. I used Truffle Jack cheese, egg and I dropped the ham this time. If you scroll down, abow the last picture in this post there is a list of different crock sandwiches

For each sandwich I made I used:

2 slices of brioche(use any type of bread)
2 slices of truffle Jack(use your favoroite cheese)
1 egg
A little lettuce and tomatoes for garnish and added nutrients.

Pre heat oven to 200 C

Toast the bread in a pan with a little butter, sandwiched the cheese between the bread.

Place the sandwich on a baking paper lined baking tray and put the sandwich in the middle of the oven. The sandwich is done as soon as the cheese has melted.

While the sandwich is baking fry the egg in a pan with a little butter on medium heat. As soon as it is done, place the egg on top of your sandwich and enjoy.
