Good Gouda Grilled Cheese Sandwich

What’s the first thing you learned to cook for yourself?  The first time my mama let me fire up a stove it was to make a grilled cheese sandwich.  I’d made sandwiches before.   In my taste bud opinion I’d mastered the ham, turkey and peanut butter sandwich.  Now it was time for me to move to the next level. Really to me the next level was frying chicken, but my mama told me I had to start out slow.  And slow to her meant a grilled cheese sandwich.  I can dig it.
I still love to make a grilled cheese sandwiches for the kiddos today.  It is a quick snack to make AND you can change it up a million ways.  The kiddos can have a version and so can I.  My version includes cucumbers and mushrooms – which the newly pescetarian teen likes too!

Heat griddle or pan.  Add 2-3 tablespoons of butter. Cook cucumbers and mushrooms for a few minutes.  Season with a little salt and pepper too if you’d like.
