Super Kicked Up Grilled Cheese Sammie

I love grilled cheese sandwiches, just so ya know.

I got this idea from Food Network Magazine. It calls for pulled pork, but I used leftover rib meat, instead. YES, on a grilled cheese sandwich!

I egged ribs, some of you know I am not a rib fan, but I made them for some neighbors, and kept a few for the disinterested teenager, just in case...

St. Louis ribs on the large, this was while watching that nice wedding on Friday~

Finishing with the sauce, Daisy pig was checking it out~

So, today, for the sammies, I carmelized some sweet onions in some butter;

And started to build the sandwich in the cast iron pan.

First the bread, outside spread with mayo, then the sliced cheddar cheese, the rib meat along with some sauce (Sweet Baby Rays), then the onions, messy looking pic:

Add some leftover Mac and cheese on top:

Some more sliced cheddar, then another piece of bread, spread with mayo on the outside.

After the flip:

Sunset happened, those are oyster beds where the trees are sticking out of the water:

Served it with a Margarita (1800 tequila), shaken and poured straight up with salt, hmmm that tastes good!

I am liking leftover ribs!

    Looks like you had a good time EGGing. I too did Ribs. How long did it take for your Ribs ? I did mine for almost 5 hours and they looked like your. I would prefer a more chewy rib, not as cooked. Any suggestions ?

    Thank you.

    Looks like you had very nice weather. We too had very nice weather.

    Wowwww wowwww wowwwww Faith you are one lucky human being :laugh: the ribs are delicious but that sunset is FANTASTIC. Felicidades!!!!!!!!!
  • Gary, 5 1/2 hours before the sauce. I did a homemade bourbon based sauce, that pic is just after I brushed the sauce on. I like them tender so I don't know what to tell you about a chewy rib.

    It was a nice, but hot, day for egging. You can see from the rib pics, it was really bright out there, the camera didn't know what to do with all that bright light (neither did the camera operator!).

    One of these days I'm gonna pull the bones and make myself a real Eggrib sandwich instead of the ground pork version I do now.

    Looks like a wonderful meal.....and those west Florida sunsets are awesome.
  • Molly, comfort food mac and cheese, but with bread and rib meat!

    Fabulous sunset! Ok, I admit it - I can eat mac-n-cheese with anything. I wouldn't have put this together, but darn if it does not rock! ;)
  • Djuffjr, rib meat sammiches are just as good as pulled pork, in my opinion. Just wait til July-August for some spectacular sensets around here!

    I'm supposed to be down again in August. Maybe they'll keep delaying this shuttle and I can see it too :woohoo:
  • dhuffjr, shuttle is the wrong coast for the sunset, but my side is only 2 1/2 hours away!
    It's doable!

    Love your post Faith. I see you got some nice spares cooked up. Love your sammie. How did the disinterested teenager like the ribs?
  • Tim, thanks!

    The disinterested teenager wasn't hungry for ribs when he got home. He thought the sammie tonight was "weird". I do not think I have a foodie on my hands here.

    Faith, you do nice work. :)

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Well maybe he is not eating you out of house and home. I was very skinny as a teenager up to my 40's. :)
  • dhuffjrdhuffjr Posts: 3,182
    I know. We're hoping to hit the cape when we are down.
  • Thank you, Q, for the compliment.

  • Tim, the teenager eats, but he is still picky. I notice his tastebuds are coming around, but it is taking forever! And, he is not impressed by anything cooked on the egg even though I told him he could have the mini to take to college. What is wrong with that kid?????

    It's no use doctor, he's gone . . . you can't save him. They say it was due to electrocution from trying to take a bit out of his computer monitor and something to do with a picture of this insanely good looking grilled cheese sandwich!!! It took three EMT's and a police dog to pry the piece of monitor from between his teeth. They were just happy it wasn't an old CRT type screen. :(

    Wowwwww, that samitch is over the top! Makes me smile, then your cookin makes me hungry, ha ha ha.
    Very nice work. And I like your Margaretta, shaken and strained into a frozen glass, no slush, just pure ice cold goodness.
    The pic's of your St. Louis ribs has me dreaming of a rib cook. I have 4 in the freezer waiting for a special occasion or good weather, or both. :lol:
    Thanks Faith.
  • Too funny, Blair. That's what you get for looking at food pics in the middle of the night!

  • ClayQ, I don't like to water down the tequila! Shaken with ice is the way to go.

    I'm glad you like the sammitch.
