Anyhoo, back to grilled cheese. I think the folks at Pinterest and the assorted recipe sites on
|That is a fun grilled cheese.|
Cheese on the inside AND
on the outside.
This recipe for this Mushroom grilled cheese... not a grilled cheese. It's a grilled mushroom sandwich with cheese on it. And yes, there is a difference. One is a grilled, crispy, cheesy delight that someone added mushrooms to (for some unknown reason) and one is this sandwich. This sandwich will make you sad because you will be expecting yum and what you will be getting is a big mouthful of mushrooms.
|That is a grilled cheese fail. Too|
much bacon. And how are you
going to eat that? It's gonna be
all greasy and when you bite into it
cheese is going to go everywhere.
So, at this point you are probably wondering "WTF DTC, are you drunk? Who needs a whole tirade on grilled cheese? Why are you so troubled over this?"
I will tell you why! After I read the below-listed post, I was so distressed that the future of America, really, the whole world was in jeopardy that I felt I needed to speak up and let people know we are going to hell in a handbasket. And believe you me, that's no way to travel. 58 Grilled Cheeses Worth Selling Your Soul For is clearly a plot to take over the world (I haven't figured out whose yet).
Disagree? What kind of monster thinks a grilled cheese has chocolate, peanut butter and cream cheese in it? Mascarpone cheese and Peeps?!?! Peeps?! Are you kidding me?! Not horrified enough? What do you think of a sandwich that calls itself a grilled cheese that is made from two chocolate chip cookies and cheddar cheese? That's just ruining both things!
The article is very clever in that they throw several extremely tasty options in there to lure
Picture looks good but then
you see the words
I cannot even tell you about #27 (check at your own risk). Was coming up with these options part of a drinking game? I mean I actually cringed when I read #27. Is it any wonder that America is in a tailspin when people are grilling sandwiches with Funfetti cake mix and ricotta? I am not making this up - go look!!!
With Pinterest being an unregulated clearinghouse of society-crushing recipes, it's going to be hard to stop these types of grilled cheeses from sneaking their way onto restaurant menus and cooking competition shows, but I am going to try my hardest by raising awareness. I see our awareness ribbon looking like it's made of swiss cheese.
Now that I have shared my concerns with you, I feel a lot better. Besides my grilled cheese awareness work, I feel like I can also start to focus on other Pinterest travesties that are wreaking havoc worldwide. Things like figuring out why there is a push to put a fried egg on everything. Things like figuring out why people are being tricked into thinking they can tile their own bathrooms or cook things that have 43 ingredients, 17 of which are not obtainable in the United States.
