Today I had the most surprisingly tasty sandwich for lunch. I was going to make a turkey and cheese sandwich until I smelled the turkey. I threw it out and we'll leave it at that. So, since I already had my heart set on a similar sandwich, I decided to make a glorified grilled cheese sandwich. I put a slice of Tillamook medium cheddar (BEST FREAKIN' CHEESE EVER...I think it might be in the Pacific NW only), some dill pickle slices, 2 tomato slices, and some spicy brown mustard in between 2 pieces of Honey Wheat Berry bread from Winco (great bread and only 90 calories a slice). I proceeded to melt it together while I checked my email and played with the dog.
I forgot to turn down the burner. So I had one completely charred piece of bread. I had already committed my taste buds to that sandwich, so I was sure as heck not going to waste that piece of bread.
I sliced my melty gooey sandwich in half and bit into it. OMG, it tasted like a Burger King hamburger!!! The way the bread had charred gave it that burger flavor without the burger calories...and now I know how BK gets their pickles to taste so dang awesome. They heat them up with cheddar cheese!
It was totally awesome. I think I actually Mmm'd out loud (kinda like Bill Murray if you've ever seen "What About Bob") and wished I would have discovered this a long time ago.
Seriously, it was the best sandwich I've had in a long time...and it was all of 280 calories. SCORE!
