  • 4 slices rustic sourdough bread
  • unsalted butter

  • Instructions

      Grilled Cheese

    • Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
    • On the opposite side of two pieces of bread, spread on 2 oz of the gorgonzola.
    • Apply peanut brittle to cheese. Top with remaining pieces of bread, butter side up.

    What a knucklehead… I posted my comment for this under a different video.
    What I said was ... “I would never have thought of this. I made it for some friends and added a classic Manhattan cocktail. A huge hit. Thanks for all the great info.”
    Keep the goodies coming.
