Mini Grilled Cheese Cakes

 
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches always seem to give everyone a sense of nostalgia. Grilled cheese sandwiches just remind us our childhoods and after school snacks. These Mini triple layer grilled cheeses are definitely a cute and fun interpretation of a classic.

Ingredients

16 slices firm white sandwich bread

2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 cups (about 4 oz.) shredded Cheddar
1/4 cup bottled sweet pepper relish
Pepper
 

Preparation

Preheat oven to 200°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Lightly mist a griddle or large skillet with cooking spray.
Use a 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut three hearts from each slice of bread. Lightly brush both sides of bread with butter.
Place about 1 1/2 tsp of cheese in center of half of hearts. Use fingers to spread cheese and lightly pack it down, following the shape of hearts. Top cheese with about 1/4 tsp of relish and season with pepper. Place the remaining hearts on top of filling, lightly pressing down to form firm, well-shaped sandwiches.
Working in batches, cook sandwiches on griddle or in skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Use a small spatula to carefully flip sandwiches over. Place finished sandwiches on lined baking sheet and keep warm in oven until ready to serve.

He wrote of experiencing numbness, palpitations, and weakness after eating in Chinese restaurants in the US, and wondered whether the monosodium glutamate used by the cooks here might be behind his strange illness. The consequences of Kwok’s letter were far-reaching and devastating. MSG, then a common food enhancer, was immediately tagged as a toxin in the public eye, a move supported by flawed “research”, and was removed from nearly every commercially-available food found on store shelves.
