Sara Lee conducted a study to see what foods Americans crave the most. The top 10 foods were:
- fried chicken
- French fries
- macaroni and cheese
- grilled cheese
- mashed potatoes
- tomato soup
Watch as Chef Jordan Poole takes some of the most craved comfort foods and combine them right into a grilled cheese sandwich.
Parm-tastic Pizza Grilled Cheese
4 slices Sara Lee® Artesano™ Bakery Bread
½ stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup marinara sauce
4 slices Provolone cheese
12 slices pepperoni
¼ cup chopped banana peppers
¼ cup caramelized onions
4 slices Mozzarella cheese
1.Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Spread the butter on one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle with the grated Parmesan, lightly pressing the Parmesan into the butter so it sticks.
2.Lay 2 slices of the bread buttered/cheese-side down in the skillet and spread 1 tablespoon of the marinara on each. Top each with 2 slices of Provolone, followed by 6 slices of pepperoni, half of the banana peppers and caramelized onions and 2 slices of Mozzarella. Spread the remaining marinara on the unbuttered side of the remaining 2 slices of bread, then place one slice of bread on top of each sandwich with the buttered/cheese side facing up.
3.Cook until golden brown, approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Slice and serve.
