Warning: if you don't watch Game of Thrones, this post probably won't be that interesting to you. Just ignore my story, check out the ingredients, follow the pictures, and start watching Game of Thrones.
Let's get things straight, I'm making a Khaleesi grilled cheese - stuffed with the ingredients that will one day mount the world. I am totally obsessed with her. For some reason the part where she ate that horse heart totally stuck with me. I knew it would be kind of a macabre idea, but after the season finale, it was time - my moon and stars told me so - I miss you already Khal Drogo.
With a little bit of influence from Dothraki's and Targaryen's, I present to you my lord, the ingredients.
- 1/2 cup Iberico cheese
- 2 thinly sliced pieces of ciabatta
- 2 pats of salted butter
- 1 tsp of garlic salt
- 1 sausage stuffed baby pepper (PLEASE DO
NOT USE REAL HORSE HEART)
(stuffed with one ground sausage patty, 1 tbs
of iberico cheese, a bit of fresh parsley, drizzled
with olive oil and baked for 40 minutes at 350)
So to begin, let's talk about this salty cheese. Iberico is one of Spain's most popular cheeses and is made from pasteurized goats, cows and sheeps milk. For the sake of this post, I'm going to pretend it's made from horse, deer, and lambs milk to make it more Targaryan-ish. The dragon feeds on what it wishes!
Alright, here's where it gets all Dothraki up in this house (and across the Narrow Sea). This next step involves making a
At this point, it will look exactly like a heart. It's sort of weird (i know), but it tastes delicious and it will make
Now cover it with more of that salty iberico cheese. It is, they say, tradition to bring the Dosh Khaleen salt.
And place the last piece of bread on top.
Heat up your pan to one thousand dragon flames (or medium high heat). Melt one pat of butter and sprinkle some garlic salt onto it. Gently place your sandwich in the pan and smear it around so it soaks up all the garlic-y goodness.
Let the sandwich cook until the cheese starts to melt just like that molten gold that killed Viserys (No tears here, he was a horrible brother). Make sure to let the crust get golden brown too. It should take about 3-4 minutes.
Then take it out of the skillet and let it sit for a hot minute. This will enhance the flavors and keep your sandwich in tact so it stays together when you eat it.
