This is a the ultimate calzone grilled cheese from my cookbook “The Happy Sandwich Cookbook!”
Growing up Mama Goldstein would let us have the cheesiest dinner we wanted midweek. This was so we celebrated everyday not just wait to the weekend to have fun! I always choose Italian food like calzone or parmesan for dinner. I love calzone because creamy tangy ricotta comes rushing out like a lava of culinary happiness. This recipe is the ultimate grilled cheese because the calzone and grilled cheese got married into the crunchiest, cheesiest, and comfort food happy dinner. Hope this makes you smile midweek and reminds you to celebrate everyday!
The Ultimate Tip For the Crispiest Grilled Cheese Crust:
- Heat up a skillet at medium heat.
- Brush the outside of the bread with lots mayonnaise (Try this Japanese Mayo it is tangier and addictive).
- Place grilled cheese on dry pan.
- Cook approximately 2 minutes per side.
- Every bite will give you that crunchy bite!
