Introduction: Golden Gate Grilled Cheese
Like a Monte Cristo, only better.
2 tablespoons softened butter
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon red chile flakes
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 cup coarsely grated parmesan cheese
4 freshly cut slices from a sourdough loaf
6 ounces thinly sliced turkey
1/2 avocado, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
2 slices muenster cheese
Step 1: Getting the Egg Wash and Parmesan Ready
In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic, and chile flakes. In a medium bowl, whisk egg and milk. Spread parmesan on a plate.
Step 2: Creating the Outside of the Sandwich
In a large frying pan, melt half the seasoned butter over medium heat. Dip 1 bread slice in egg mixture, coating one side only. Dip coated side into parmesan. Place to one side in frying pan, cheese side down. Repeat with 1 of remaining bread slices.
Step 3: Putting the Sandwich Together
3. Arrange turkey, avocado, cilantro, and muenster on slices, dividing evenly. Lift sandwiches and add remaining butter to pan; flip and cook until second side is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes more.
Step 4: Enjoy!
