This weekend was the Notre Dame / USC game. And it was a night game so that left 7 hours of tailgating – assuming you arrived at noon like we did… Wait, not everyone appreciates 7 hours of tailgating? In the cold and wind with the occasional rain shower? Huh. Who knew…
Anyway, 7 hours means that we need to plan for two meals. It also means that you really have to plan your liquid intake if you want to survive 7 hours without a visit to a disgusting port-a-potty .
The main course was our standard sausages with bacon-wrapped tater tots (read how to make them here). I still love bacon wrapped tater tots…
But the “light” lunch option was grilled cheese sandwiches … get it? … grilled cheese? As in cheese sandwiches grilled outside on the grill?
Trust me. It’s hilarious.
I have to say, real grilled cheese sandwiches are the most amazing thing. And they were super easy to make.
I made them like normal cheese sandwiches … bread with butter on the outsides, cheese, tomatoes, onions, etc… and then grilled them on a tray inside the grill until the cheese was melted.
The grill gave the whole sandwich a deep, smoky flavor. I know I’ve already said this, but it’s worth repeating. These sandwiches were amazing! I highly suggest you give them a shot.
