Growing up, I loved a great greasy grilled cheese! I recently was inspired by the great Food Network show Chopped, to jazz up the common grilled cheese! As huckleberries are coming into season here in Montana I felt like it was the perfect addition to the classic savory grilled cheese.
As many of you know, I've been very obsessed with baking pretzels lately. I mean totally obsessed! I think they are fun and flavorful, so I made a pretzel bun as a warrior to hold the cheesy deliciousness!
Pretzel Roll: Preheat the oven to 425°
In a food processor, combine the flour, salt, sugar and the yeast
Pulse in the warm water until a ball of dough forms
Place the dough in a warm location for 30 minutes to rise
Once the dough rises, place the ball of dough on a cutting board with oil lightly coating the surface
In a bowl, combine your boiling water and the baking soda and set aside
Taking your dough, roll into about 3" balls and set in the baking soda for 1 minute
Transfer all the balls of dough from the baking soda bath to the parchment lined baking pans
Using a sharp knife, score the top of the balls in an X formation
Place in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown
- 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 2 packs of active yeast
- 1 cup of warm water
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 1 tablespoon of baking soda
- 3 tablespoons of melted butter
- sprinkle of salt for each pretzel
Cheese and Huckleberry:
- 1 cup of grated pepper jack cheese
- 1 cup of grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup of huckleberry jam
Once the rolls are golden brown, taking a brush, brush the top of the rolls with the melted butter and sprinkle with salt
Next, take your rolls and slice down the middle to create two slices of rolls
Using a knife or a spatula, spread your huckleberry jam (really add a lot!) to the top and bottom of the rolls on the inside
Taking about 1/4" cup of each cheese, place on the roll and then place the top back on and place on a heated skillet for about 5 minutes for the cheese to melt!
Eat and enjoy!
