Slice Slice SLICE 2 2 SERVES: 2

What if you could take the best of the game-day foods and combine it with the king of the comfort foods? Mixing the kick of buffalo wings with the melty perfection of a classic grilled cheese sandwich? Well, wonder no more, my friend. That’s exactly what we’ve done with this Cooper Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese sandwich. And yes, it’s exactly as unbelievable as you think.

INGREDIENTS

4 slices of white or Italian bread
butter
1 half or full grilled chicken breast, cut into chunks or shredded
4-6 slices of Cooper Sharp Cheese
1/4 to 1/2 cup buffalo sauce
fresh jalapeño slices
1/2 red bell pepper, cut into slices or diced

Optional:
celery stalks
blue cheese salad dressing

DIRECTIONS

In a small microwavable bowl, mix the grilled chicken and buffalo sauce. Add the jalapeño and red pepper. Use just enough sauce to coat the chicken. Mix well. Heat 30-40 seconds in the microwave until warm.

Butter 1 side each of the slices of bread.

In a preheated skillet, place a piece of bread, buttered-side down. Layer 1 or 2 slices of Cooper Cheese, dollop the chicken and pepper mixture on top of the cheese, then add another layer of Cooper Cheese slices. Cap with a second piece of bread, buttered-side up.

Grill the sandwich in the skillet for a few minutes, checking the bottom of the sandwich for doneness. Carefully flip the sandwich and grill until the cheese is melted and bread is browned and toasted.

Be careful removing the sandwich from the skillet (and eating it, for that matter) because it’s going to be saucy and gooey!

Repeat to create a second grilled cheese sandwich.

Serve with celery and blue cheese salad dressing for dunking.
