Imagine this:

It's freezing outside, the wind's blowin' and the snow's fallin' and you're hungry. What do you make? Well I'll tell you what I made when the aforementioned conditions were present, a deluxe grilled cheese sandwich!

The only picture I took of this amazing sandwich was on my iPod and it came out all fuzzy so you're just going to have to imagine the beauty that was this sandwich!

Recipe for Michaela's Deluxe Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

2 slices cheese bread
1 chicken breast, sliced
5-6 mushrooms, sliced
2 thick slices of mild brick cheese
salt and pepper
olive oil

1. Slice the chicken breast thinly at a 45 degree angle. This helps the chicken cook faster. Cook the chicken in a tbsp of olive oil until cooked through. Set aside.
2. Put a tbsp of olive oil in the hot pan and wait for it to heat up. Add the mushrooms to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until mushrooms have reduced in size. Set aside.
3. Butter each slice of bread on one side.
4. Butter side up, place one slice of cheese on the bread, chicken, mushrooms, and then the remaining slice of cheese. Top with the other slice of bread, butter facing down.
5. Put the sandwich in the clean, hot pan and weight down if necessary. Grill for about 3-4 minutes on this side until you see the bottom layer of cheese start to melt.
6. After the cheese has started to melt, carefully flip the sandwich over using a spatula and repeat step 5.
7. When all the cheese appears to be melted, remove from the pan. On a cutting board, slice diagonally and then plate the sandwich with a side of chips!

This sandwich knocked my socks off! I'm not usually big on sandwiches, but this one was deeeelish! Next time I'd like to add bacon and maybe a few slices of avocado. Now that'd be one tasty meal!
