A childhood favourite. A family classic. The taste of home. There are few foods we look back on throughout our lifetimes that can offer the same warmth and solace of a good grilled cheese sandwich.
Our Grilled Cheese Truffle recipe is a new twist on a beloved staple.
Featuring three Hedessent Flavours, we start this recipe with our Black Truffle Flavour. This essence adds a deeper, umami note and takes this classic comfort food from every day to gourmet.
Our Pesto Flavour is a complex combination of bright and herbal, tempered with subtle garlicky undertones and a richness that is reminiscent of parmesan, pine nuts, and a quality olive oil. Mushroom Porcino Flavour adds a savory, meaty earthiness, which balances and complements the fresh flavours of the Pesto, while still enhancing the woodsy of the Black Truffle.
For an added bonus we also included a quick and easy way to spice up ketchup using our Chili Hot Flavour.
Check out our Grilled Cheese Truffle, and see how easily you can elevate this classic comfort food into a savory indulgence the whole family will enjoy.
