Kicked Up Grilled Cheese

  • Loaf of your favorite bread
  • Firehouse Jack (hot pepper jack) cheese
  • Bread and Butter pickles
  • Butter and/or olive oil

There are no exact measurements for this. Just slice the bread and cheese as needed, put slices of cheese and pickles on one slice,  cover with another slice of bread, spread some butter on the outside or just put a bit of olive oil on the bread or in the pan and grill away, toasting each side. Holly used cheese and pickles from West River Creamery, and bread from Mamadou’s.
