My Dad is a man of simple tastes. Not that he likes things boring! He always chided my sisters and I for getting “just pepperoni” on our pizza when we were kids. What sort of lunatics don’t get olives and peppers and mushrooms? Well, my sisters and I obviously. BUT the truth is that the easiest way to please him was to simply make him a grilled cheese sandwich. And man, if you thought to put some spicy mustard, pickled jalapeños or olives in it. WELL, clearly there was a culinary GOD in the house. This recipe is what my Dad considers the most satisfying, bang for your buck and for your time.
