Grilled Cheese

  • Spread ½ tablespoons of butter onto each side of each slice of bread.
  • To build the two sandwiches lay two pieces of bread on your work surface. Place 1 slice of pepper jack cheese onto each slice of bread. Then add 1 cup of the buffalo chicken to each. Top with 1 more slice of pepper jack and red onion and the second slice of bread.

Tips & Notes

  • The buffalo sauce does not need to be cold. You just want it to be cool enough to not burn yourself if you use your hands to put on the bread.
  • If you want it less spicy you can use another base cheese. Mozzarella would be a nice sub to cool it down.
  • You can also omit blue cheese if you don’t like it.
  • The thin slices of red onion add sweetness to the sandwich once they are cooked.
